Hunter Valley Semillon's reputation for its unique character and excellent quality has been widespread.
This selection is usually made in an un-oaked style, which will age for a significant period. It has citrus fruit characteristics of lemon and lime and is a crisp, clean, refreshing drink. Left for 3-4 years, it will develop hints of honey and a smokiness similar to barrel aging.
Semillon is the predominant variety on the Ernest Hill Vineyard, with three blocks producing slightly different styles. The Cyril comes from the smallest block on the vineyard, being a little over one acre.
Cyril was father and grandfather to the Wilson family.
