Winemaker Rauri Donkin has chosen only the finest parcels of fruit identified within Bimbadgen’s Palmers Lane vineyard to craft a premium wine of regional style and intensity of flavor.

The sandy loam soils of our Palmers Lane vineyard combined with a hands off winemaking approach, have produced a classic Hunter Valley Semillon. The lemongrass and kaffir lime leaf aromatics are complimented by a subtle minerality and chalkiness on the palate. The crisp focused line of lime acidity ensures that this Semillon can be aged with confidence for up to ten years.
