A fine example of Mt. Barker Riesling - citrus, lemon peel, floral notes and with a lovely hint of gunsmoke.
One of the finest Howard Park Rieslings now emerging from its shell and developing into a complex wine. Attractive, bright, light yellow hues. Lovely savoury toasty characters, fresh and bright, citric, primary aromas. Very good palate, rich in primary fruits; citric, savoury, quite intense wine, great flavour extension. Clean finish.
As like the last vintage the harvest began at the beginning of March due to the unseasonably dry conditions. The 1998 has slightly more development than the 1997 and is showing developed tan hues, some oxidative aromas, bruised fruit characters, very toasty. Some nice citric characters but development characters dominate palate.
Aromas of ripe berry and spiced fruit cake dominate, with rich savoury plum, chinese plums and concentrated Ribena cordial adding further complexity. Savoury plums, spiced cherry and plum pudding characters ensure the wine is full bodied but perfectly balanced, finishing crisp and clean.
What a cracking wine this is - a lovely mature Hunter Valley Semillon now at its (first) peak and looking fine. What makes it so special is that lovely mix of acidity vs fruit and bottle age induced richness, making for a wine that is both refreshing and creamy. Much to love.
Colour: Bright, pale straw. Nose: A wonderful floral bouquet with hints of lime, mandarin and grapefruit. Palate: Shows rich full fruit with spicy lime, mandarin and a hint of grapefruit. The finish is dry and long with intense fruit flavours showing great persistence.
Excellent, luminous green/yellow colour. A super vintage and more ripe flavours than we are used to, however makes for a very flavoursome Semillon. Very good colour lime and citrus lift (slight lemongrass) balanced palate. Food - Asian, soups and light meat dishes.
A classic Hunter Valley Semillon showing a tightly structured palate with considerable length and breadth of citrus fruit flavours. This wine is beginning to display toasty bottle aged complexity.
Excellent, bright green/yellow colour, still youthful. The aromas do not show a lot of development with lemongrass and tlc Semillon fruit. Entry onto the palate shows clean, zesty citrus fruit and just a hint of softer nutty development. The vanillin edge is the precursor to the classic 'toast' that aged Hunter Semillon develops. A long finish with lime acid fruit flavours. Food - Asian, soups and light meat dishes.
Aroma: Fresh, nutty, creamy fruit with subtle melon overtones. Elusive and complex aromas. Palate: Crisp, tight, fine and understated. Concentrated but not big. A wine of freshness, delicacy and subtle power. Flavourful but delicate foods are ideal partners for this wine. Food Suggestion: Happily accompanies a wide range of foods, in particular, seafood such as prawns, barramundi or lobster.
Colour: Pale straw with green tinges. Nose: Fragrant nose with intense tropical fruits limejuice aromas. Palate: Excellent flavour with ripe passionfruit and hints of lime and citrus. Very fresh on the palate with great depth of flavour and excellent acid balance.
Still pale green/yellow in colour with lifted talc/lanolin aromas. On release at 5 years of age just starting to show traditional Hunter Valley Semillon toast. Hunter Semillon is traditionally low in alcohol however the palate takes on a richness and depth that is unique to the region's premier white style. Often confused as an oak character the rich flavour is just from the aging. This can often have a lime juice edge. A perfect accompaniment to heavier seafood dishes or white meats. Food - Asian food, any seafood especially fresh shucked oysters.
Green and vibrant in appearance. The aroma is fresh lemon and lime juice with a hint of lemon peel. The palate is powerful, lively and generous, with intense citrus fruit flavours and a hint of spice. The wine finishes clean and dry with refreshing natural acidity.
Colour: Bright pale straw. Nose: Intense stonefruit and peach fruit aromas with some savoury, smoky characters providing extra layers of complexity. Sweet oak aromas complete the picture without dominating the fruit. Palate: This is a full flavoured style with abundant ripe fruit flavours backed up by elements of cashew nut, brioche and even flint. These flavours are complimented with sweet oak giving a palate of excellent weight and texture that flows through to a finish that is crisp and fresh.
Cornflower and soap aromas are still evident with a tight lemony / minerally palate. Still quite restrained but starting to develop into a fuller bodied style with honeyed characters. Very structured palate, with great depth and breadth of flavour.
A classic Hunter Valley semillon showing a tightly structured palate with considerable length and breadth of citrus fruit flavours. This wine is beginning to display toasty bottle aged complexity.
This Reserve Semilon is just starting to produce those soft toast and butter elements that aged Hunter Valley Semillon is prized for.
Aroma: Lifted cherry fruit with hints of plum and spice. Typical Pinot fragrance. Palate: Ripe fruit, complex and supple. Generously flavoured and a lingering, drying savoury tannin on the finish. Fine and delicate.
Appearance: Pale straw in colour with green tints. Clarity and appearance are brilliant. Nose: Lifted limes and lemon citrus flavours predominate. Nose shows amazing depth and intensity, displaying all the style and character that the region is so famous for. Palate: The palate provides both power and elegance of flavour. Again the limes and citrus characters predominate and combine with the cleansing natural acidity to create a long, flavoursome and persistent palate experience.
Colour: In the glass, the wine appears crisp displaying fresh green tinges to the pale straw colour. Nose: The nose is typical of cool climate Chardonnay melons and peach supported by finer grapefruit and mandarin aromas. Palate: The array of flavours and the fine structure of the palate are an indication of the quality of the vintage. Flavours of nectarine and rockmelon balance the initial tropical fruit.
