Semillon 2018 – Black Market Deal #34881
- Fresh, juicy
- Margaret River
Out in Margaret River, the semillon usually ends up blended with sauv blanc. But when a producer wants to highlight the distinct characteristics of a single vineyard, it often pays off to keep the semillon on its own. In this instance, we couldn’t agree more. There’s a freshness and brightness to the wine that isn’t often seen in the variety, probably due to the sunshine so ever-present in Margaret River. It’s juicy, herbaceous and refreshing, with hints of honeysuckle, letting you know you are in fact drinking semillon.
What is a Black Market deal?
Black Market deals are only made possible if we don’t reveal the maker’s brand on site. The wines are the genuine article – absolutely no cleanskins or fake brands, just dangerously good value. You won’t find out what it is until it hits your doorstep, but you won’t regret it. Just keep it on the down low.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Margaret River is as elusive as it is beautiful, such that you really need to visit to truly grasp its haunting beauty. Über-premium Cabernet, Chardonnay and Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blends grow here. 'Margies' only produces 3% of the country's grapes, but commands over 20% of its premium wine market, and hasn't had an off vintage since 2006. You start to realise how often this region is overlooked when you can list brands like Leeuwin, Cape Mentelle, Vasse Felix, and Voyager, not to mention Cullen, Pierro, Moss Wood, and Deep Woods. It's safe to say that it's time for a revisit.
