Vineyard Honeytree Estate, Pokolbin
Winemaker Michael McManus
Silver – Australian Small Winemakers Show 2022, Class 11 Semillon – 2022 Vintage
Very pale-yellow green in colour with an intense nose of lanolin and straw. Underlying this is an intensity of passionfruit. The palate has immediate presence. Fine intense passionfruit with a laser like linearity and an intensity which builds to long focused and prolonged finish. This is an exceptional wine which will age beautifully over the next 20+ years. An absolute classic Hunter Semillon in the making.
Dr Ron Georgiou MW – Wine Oracle – 95-97+/100
A beautifully made semillon. Lemon rules the roost, glittering acidity taking the flavours to all corners of the mouth. The quality of the fruit is awesome.
James Halliday – Wine Companion – 96/100
Don’t be misled by the sweet name Honeytree. This is seriously sharp and dry as are Adam Bandt and Ms L, and as semillon should be.
Max Crus 9.4/10
The first vintage of Honeytree Semillon since we purchased this vineyard.
