Looking for a Semillon with a difference? Semillon is a true Hunter Classic. This year we tried something different, paying homage to the techniques of winemakers gone before us. This wine has fresh citrus flower notes and a limey acidity..
A blend of several different vineyards in the Pokolbin region this Semillon displays classic aromas of fresh citrus flower with underlying fresh cut grass. The palate is long and tight. Primary flavours of fresh lime and green apple dominate held rounded off with a slight creamy texture thanks to ferment on 20 % grape solids and short term maturation on yeast lees. Fermentation temperature was kept low and steady and the wine bottled within months of harvest to maintain freshness fitting to the Hunter Valley Semillon style. This wine is fantastically matched with freshly shucked oysters and fresh seafood. Drink within the first 2 years or cellar for 5 + years.
