Product Details

Tasting Notes

Semillon is so often part of a blend, but when it takes centre stage, it can really sing.

This one, from Australia, is full of lovely lime fruit flavours, with some gooseberry and tropical fruit flavours too.

Perfect served with salmon fishcakes.

Expert Opinion

What our expert says

BBC Saturday Kitchen, Saturday 8th July 2012. Susy Atkins selected the Telegraph Station Semillon 2011 to go with Paul Rankin’s Japanese Salmon dish:“Many people know of the Semillon grape for the role it plays in the classic white Bordeaux blend, but it also makes its mark in Australia where it delivers a wine that is not overtly fruity and oaky like the typical Aussie Chardonnay, but is more subtle, creamy and rounded. A lovely perfume, it’s a wee bit buttery there with some peach and slightly citrus like. The plump texture here is key to standing up to the texture of the salmon. A premium Australian wine perfect for this salmon dish.”

Background

History

Semillon is a classic French grape which has become one of Australia's most iconic white varietals. This wine takes its name from the Overland Telegraph Stations built in 1872 between Port August in the south and Darwin in the north, which connected Australia with the rest of the world.
