He's made textbook dry Hunter semillion; he's made a lovely off-dry semillon; he's even made a slightly funky "wild" semillon.
And now, to borrow from Star Trek, Pokolbin winemaker Matt Burton has traversed the final frontier for semillon - a semillon-infused gin.
"It's at the cellar door from Saturday," Gundog winemaker Matt Burton said. "I'm really excited to see how it goes."
The obvious question was why gin?
"All of our guys in the winery and the cellar door love a gin, so I guess it was the next step," Burton said.
"It's about a whole brand experience, not just for new customers but for our members and repeat customers.
"We've expanded our wine range over the years, we brought out a Gundog beer recently - our Hunting Ale which has done well for us - so I thought why not a gin?
"For some reason wine drinkers seem to really appreciate that clean freshness of gin. And as a winemaker I was intrigued by the process and the impact all the botanicals can have on flavour."
Burton sought the assistance of the guys at Newy Distillery to put his plan in place.
By his own admission, he had a feeling that the tangy sharpness of semillon could work well in a gin, but needed guidance.
"I used the Four Pillar Classic Dry as a building block - that's a favourite of mine, so Luke at Newy Distillery knew what sort of flavour profile I wanted, and we started from there.
"We had a few trial batches and narrowed it down. There's a not a huge amount of semillon in the final product, just enough. It's all complimentary and the semillon gives the aromatics a huge lift. I'm delighted with the drink we've come up with, but would think this is going to continue to evolve over the next few years.
"It's a super fresh style - just a basic tonic water, lime and ice is all you need."
The Gundog Dry Gin sells for $85 but be warned - the first batch production was only 100 bottles, so it will go fast.
"We're getting a bigger second batch in before Christmas though," Burton said.
