This mixed pack contains some of our leading and award-winning Semillon wines that allow you to understand the many characters of this amazing varietal, new, old and blended. The pack contains:

  • 3x Mount Pleasant Cellar Aged Elizabeth 2009: this wine shows the amazing capacity of Semillon to age in the cellar. Over time, Semillon evolves from a pale and crisp, dry and lemon-fresh character to a deeper gold colour with multi-dimensional white wine with fascinating complexity, smoothness and depth. The 2009 Cellar Aged Elizabeth presents classic citrus aromas of lime & lemongrass predominate with wonderful intensity and purity, but lovely honey toast notes and lanolin coming through with age. This is a seamless wine of rich citrus flavours and fine acid structure hinting at the potential for this wine to cellar with great longevity.
