We've put together a premium pack consisting of 3 x Silkman 2014 Shiraz Pinot Noir and 3 x Silkman 2016 Reserve Semillon.
Wine writer Huon Hooke has been writing about premium wines for over 30 years, so when a wine hits him 'like a bolt of lightning' that's really saying something... He was talking about the Silkman 2014 Reserve Shiraz Pinot. We've been huge fans of this wine since it arrived at the Centre because, quite simply, it just tastes so good.
Huon's tasting notes: 'Fragrant, medium-bodied, silky tannins, utterly delicious.' (Huon Hooke The Real Review July 5)
Showing floral notes of blueberries and spice, undertones of cassis and dark cherries, this is an extremely moreish wine.
To top their win of the Halliday Chardonnay Challenge in 2015, the Silkmans have now taken out the James Halliday Best Semillon in Australia in the 2018 Halliday Wine Companion.
Liz & Shaun Silkman make their Semillon in the traditional Hunter style: lean, unoaked and with a pristine flavour profile. Lifted aromas of citrus and lemongrass are layered over mineral zesty notes and the palate is beautifully structured with primary fruit character of citrus and white peach.
This is a tightly structured young Semillon with great persistence and mouth feel. Lifted aromas of citrus and lemongrass are layered over mineral zesty notes. The palate is long and refreshing displaying primary fruit character of citrus and white peach.
Cellaring: 10+ but drinking beautifully now as a young Semillon.
