Si vintners consists of Iwo Jakimowicz and Sarah Morris, and they have 20 acres of mature vines in Margaret River. They work naturally in both the vineyard and winery, with organics/biodynamics in the former and an additive-free approach in the latter – with just a little sulfur dioxide added at bottling. This Semillon comes from 34 year old vines and is fermented in concrete eggs, where it remains for two years under a natural flor. It’s remarkable!
Si Vintners Chinchechle Semillon 2011 Margaret River, Australia
Full yellow/gold colour. Amazing nose of matchstick, minerals and lime oil. Really vivid and lively. The palate is tangy, mineral and bright with some rich grape and melon notes under the zippy lime characters. High acidity keeps things very fresh. Pure, complex and detailed, this is essence of Semillon. It’s sensationally good. 94/100 (UK agent Les Caves de Pyrene)
