Vinden Wines Reserve Semillon 2017

Vinden Wines Reserve Semillon shows the character of old gnarled vines. A true Hunter classic filled with delicious concentrated citrus freshness, refreshing acidity and delicate minerality. Delivered perfectly in a soft, round package.

100% Semillon. The fruit comes from two famous Semillon vineyards. Trevena Vineyard was planted in 1920 on sandy loam soils, these unirrigated vines are situated on Hermitage Road Pokolbin. Somerset Vineyard in Pokolbin, planted in 1969 on sandy clay loam. 

Hand-picked and fermented in stainless steel.

Young Angus Vinden is the owner/winemaker of this much-loved Hunter Valley winery. Having taken the reins from his father just a few years ago, Gus is reimagining his family's wine label with a string of exciting, modern wines coming out of his cellar.


Ageing potential: Great to drink now, but patience will be rewarded with cellaring up to 10+ years.



 From the Trevena Vineyard planted 1920 and the Somerset Vineyard planted '69, both on sandy soil. Hand-picked and fermented naturally in stainless steel. A very attractive wine with just a hint of development leaving it in a good place. Ripe citrus and soft acidity suggest the next 5 years will see it at its best.
