Reviews for 2006 Brokenwood Semillon ILR Aged Reserve

James Halliday - James Halliday, July 2012
Straw-green still bright and relatively light; at the first moment of the emergence of honey and toast from its lime and mineral womb but has many years before it becomes an adult. Thus you have the best of all worlds... Straw-green still bright and relatively light; at the first moment of the emergence of honey and toast from its lime and mineral womb but has many years before it becomes an adult. Thus you have the best of all worlds drink it now tomorrow or in 10 years or more by which time the honey toast and nut characters will be at their zenith.

This is a lively traditional Hunter semillon with a marvelous delicacy and restraint. Generous lemon flavour a faint impression of sweetness then a very fresh zesty clean dry finish.--Huon Hooke

Classically restrained aromas of curd and lees with hints of aged complexity: lemon oil and quince. Long and chiseled with superb complexity and intensity. Screwcap.

Zest lemon mandarin lime - the full spectrum of citrus along with a tempting whiff of the toast to come. It's precise flinty and dry with long lemony finish - the shape and line unswerving. Very young still its best days... Zest lemon mandarin lime - the full spectrum of citrus along with a tempting whiff of the toast to come. It's precise flinty and dry with long lemony finish - the shape and line unswerving. Very young still its best days yet to come. 94+

Bright straw. Spicy precise aromas of pear skin yellow plum and dried citrus fruits with an intensely floral character.

Spicy precise aromas of pear skin yellow plum and dried citrus fruits with an intensely floral character. Deep musky lemon pith and herb flavors are impressively focused and nervy with a dusty mineral underpinning adding cut. The long dry finish shows very good clarity and a spicy intensely floral tone. This really demands patience. 92+

The 2006 ILR Reserve Semillon reveals notes of hay tree bark lemon peel and toast with a hint of crushed stones. Light-bodied with crisp acid and a great concentration of mature Semillon flavors it has a long minerally finish. Drinking now it should cellar to 2022+. -Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Tart with a distinct waxy character that wafts through the lime and quince flavors lingering effortlessly. Shows depth and impressive length. Drink now through 2016. -HS

Brokenwood's flagship Semillon is light in body with an acid structure that's notable for its intensity. Aromas of struck flint and lime zest presage the crisp lime flavors and fresh zippy finish. Give this puppy another... Brokenwood's flagship Semillon is light in body with an acid structure that's notable for its intensity. Aromas of struck flint and lime zest presage the crisp lime flavors and fresh zippy finish. Give this puppy another few years in the cellar to gain honeyed nuance then drink it over the next decade.
