“Barambah grows a small quality parcel of Semillon (7 hectares). This wine is a special release as not all years produce such exceptional fruit.Beginning the season, 2008 vintage experienced very moderate weather, with the required rainfall and cool breezes flowing over a vineyard on a 370 metre plateau west of the Great Divide. This early-harvest Semillon was whole-bunch pressed and fermented in stainless steel. Unwooded and low in alcohol, this wine lends itself to good cellaring, or drink now to enjoy flavours of gooseberries, green apples and a clean,fresh, citrus finish. Well suited to spicy salads and fresh seafoods. ” Peter Scudamore-Smith – Master of Wine It is against the law to sell or supply alcohol to, or to obtain alcohol on behalf of, a person under the age of 18 years. 2008 Tony Harper – Top 20 Qld Wines Courier Mail Qld Food Guide 2008 James Halliday Wine Companion 2010 – 88points
