South Burnett Semillon is light and subtle when young, and gradually develops character with age. This example from Kingsley Grove is very moderately oaked, but while young will be fresh , zippy and restrained, with terrific structure that is the hallmark of great Semillon and offers great aging potential. This Semillon will match fantastically with fresh Queensland seafood or a light chicken salad on a warm summers evening, and with heavier white meat dishes as it ages.
