Certainly worth investing both time and money to watch it truly come together.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, October 2014
The 2011 Vat 1 Semillon presents a citrus nose garlanded with lemon grass and lime leaves that is quite chalky and a little closed. In the mouth it is a classic Vat 1 – bone dry and light-bodied with rasping acidity...   The 2011 Vat 1 Semillon presents a citrus nose garlanded with lemon grass and lime leaves that is quite chalky and a little closed. In the mouth it is a classic Vat 1 – bone dry and light-bodied with rasping acidity, great citrus intensity and mineral character. It has a very long, elegant finish though needs time to evolve. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Tighter and less phenolic than the basket pressed Johnno's. Finer detail here which suits the transparency of the style more, perhaps. Long-plus and will age gracefully over the next 15 years. Screwcap. 10.5%.

Wine Spectator, November 2016
Distinctive, with an appealing whiff of lanolin to the lemon curd and orange zest core, set on a medium body. A touch of toasted green tea shows on the crisp finish. Drink now through 2026. 3,000 cases made. –MW
