Reviews and Ratings

Deborah Podurgiel Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

What a beautiful nose on this small lot Sémillon from Hester Creek Estate Winery. This is a 100% Sémillon with grapes sourced from their Block 12 Vineyard on the Golden Mile Bench (planted in 2020).

Fragrant with fine herbs, aromas of fresh tarragon stand out with honeysuckle florals and clean mineral notes. Available to club members only, this is a dry, medium-bodied voluptuous Sémillon, not fat by any means, but textured, ripe and mouthfilling with white florals, tarragon, lemon zest, a saline mineral touch finishing long, zingy and refreshing. Lovely now!

Grapes are hand-harvested, destemmed, whole-berry pressed, cold settled and fermented for two weeks in stainless-steel tank. Aged on its fine lees with regular lees stirring giving this wine more structure, finesse and that nice, creamy mouth feel. We paired it with grilled Ahi tuna in a ginger, lemon and tarragon marinade. The winery suggests pairing it with B.C. cod or halibut in a lemon butter sauce - it certainly has the balanced acidity to cut through a rich fish dish or sauce.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
