James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2022)
Hard to believe that a wine with so much bright crisp pear, star fruit and fresh herbs character has less than 11% alcohol. Very sleek body with quite a steely finish, but the fruit is the winner! Drink or hold.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 92 Points (2022)
In a region with as pronounced climactic variation as the Hunter Valley’s, vintage matters. 2022 saw plentiful rain and a late harvest. It’s resulted in a bright, aromatic Semillon that proves an excellent, affordable intro to this unique style. There are notes of preserved lemon, beeswax, lamp oil, white spice and dried herbs. The mouthfeel is round and textural, with zingy acidity. Floral, citrus and spice flow to the finish. This is a summer sipper to pair with seafood or crumbly cheeses.

James Halliday (JH) : 92 Points (2018)
This is said by Tyrrell's to be the baby brother of Vat 1, coming from special blocks from Tyrrell's wide selection of vineyards. Its palate has building blocks yet to come together, ripe semillon fruit and minerally acidity. The hot vintage tested many vineyards. (2/2020)

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2018)
Distinctive and refreshing, featuring bright, crisp lemony flavors, with undercurrents of lanolin and saline. Offers a supple frame and an impressive finish.

Robert Parker (RP) : 90 Points (2016)
The 2016 Semillon is a fresh, fruit-forward example of the genre. Green apple and lime juice notes dominate, while hints of crushed stone provide a pleasantly silky texture and extend through the long, mouthwatering finish. While some Sémillons age well, given this wine's fruit-forward nature, I'd opt for drinking it over the next few years.

The wine is floral fruit in youth, which moves towards biscuity characters with age. The palate is generally softer bodied with smoother acids than the Vat 1 and Belford Semillons

De Martino Single Vineyard La Cancha Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
De Martino Single Vineyard La Cancha Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
These are characterful wines from selected single vineyards that embody the style of De Martino. La Cancha is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon and our best expression of the variety. This vineyard in Isla de Maipo was for many years a football pitch (or “cancha” in Spanish), hence its name.

Brundlmayer Gruner Veltliner Alte Reben 2021
A rich and still juvenile bouquet of hay & honey blossoms, melon, yellow fruit with subtle exotic tones, as well as apple and citrus peel, followed by a whiff of peppery and toasty spice, at first fresh and dry but very sappy, with a creamy texture, almost rich, very complex and detailed, i.e. blossom honey, freshly cut citrus, apple and stone fruit, nicely contoured & firmly interwoven, with a long and spicy finish.
