Winery Tasting Notes

This Semillon has the typical lively lemon butter fruit character which is a trademark Willows Vineyard style, along with a touch of vanillan oak from barrel fermentation and a brief period of maturation in French oak hogsheads. The palate is full flavoured, with good length, elegance and zest that indicates it will age beautifully over five years and beyond.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

"Our philosophy is that our wines must have generosity of fruit and you can only achieve that if you are in touch with the vineyard."

"Not only are our wines 100% Barossa but they are sourced entirely from our own single vineyard at Light Pass. We don`t have the choice of blending material so what you see is what you get. Everything we do-pruning, supplementary watering, shoot thinning, the time of harvest-is all aimed at achieving ripe tannins and demonstrating the vineyard`s fruit intensity."

"We don`t want big alcoholic, porty reds - We aim for silky ripe tannins rather than grip and want the fruit to shine through in our Shiraz and Cabernet.""We are also judicious about our use of Oak-we extend the time in barrel to two years but we generally use at least 50% second and third use barrels. We are looking for softness and stability-maturation character not overt oak characters."This approach to red winemaking has led to many show and wine media acknowledgements, not the least of which was a Gold Medal in the Melbourne Wine Show in 1995-putting them a whisker away from the Jimmy Watson Trophy.

Peter, who has distinguished himself as a Semillon maker, believes the same restrained approach is needed with this often misunderstood varietal."In the early days people used too much Oak with Semillon-I have chosen to exclude Oak entirely in our more recent vintages. I like our Semillon`s lemon-butter-citrus flavours when young with a creaminess as it ages. The test of a good Semillon is its finish-it must still have zest and life in the finish even after a few years in the bottle."It is this philosophy which has won them a number of coveted Trophies with Semillon.

The 1995 International Wine Challenge for the Best Semillon in the World for the 1993 Willows Semillon.The 2000 Hyatt Wine of the Year Awards for the 1997 Willows Semillon.Barossa Wine Show in 2010 and 2011 for the Best Semillon with the 2006 Semillon.

In 2012 the Len Sorbello Trophy at the Winewise small vigneron awards for the 2011 Semillon.

Cellar Condition

Provenance; “Place of origin; derivation”

  • The history of the ownership of an object, especially when documented or authenticated. Used for Artworks, Antiques, and Wine.
  • The records or documents authenticating such an object or the history of its ownership.

Whenever you buy wine there is an inherent risk, as wine is a perishable good regardless of whether it is sealed under cork or screwcap. At GraysOnline we minimise the risk to you by providing as much information as possible regarding the provenance of the wine we sell.

We take the time to individually inspect each bottle and photograph it so you know exactly what you are buying. All Private Cellar wine stored at GraysOnline is kept in a temperature controlled wine storage area. Any wine that doesn’t meet our quality standards will not be sold.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 5 star designation are recognised as being of proven quality provenance, our team has verified that the wine has been stored correctly from original purchase straight from the winery, documentation, where possible, has been sighted and cellaring conditions have been inspected. This wine generally comes from only the best and most respected of wine collectors in Australia.

★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 4 star designation have been cellared correctly as verified by the current owners. In general these wines have been purchased from retailers or traders and stored in cellared conditions from original purchase.

★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 3 star designation are in good condition when we inspect and we are able to confirm some cellaring conditions but we are unable to verify all ownership and storage conditions of their history.

A wine displaying no stars doesn’t mean that there is a problem with the wine, it simply means that we have been unable to verify provenance, however a quality image is always available for the purchaser to make their own purchasing decisions.

Private Cellar wine is wine which has been stored for aging purposes in a Private Cellar.

Storing the wine and allowing it to age has the potential to improve the quality of the wine. While wine is perishable and capable of deteriorating, storing the wine can alter the aroma, colour, mouthfeel and taste of the wine in a way that may be more pleasing to the taster.
