2012 James Estate Reserve Hunter Semillon

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This reserve Semillon is a reminder that the Hunter Valley makes some of the worlds most unique whites. This has vital aromas of citrus and pear with hints of spice. The palate delivers flinty citrus with a crisp structure and an amazing acid line. Just perfect with freshly shucked oysters.

2012 James Estate Reserve Hunter Semillon

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Pale green-quartz; the typical intensity, the spread of aromas and flavours in the 'new' style, with specific cultured yeast(s) helping build the citrus and pear fruits, but without detracting from the sharply focused, laser-like line of the palate.

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Pale straw-green; as with so many modern Hunter Valley semillons, shares many characteristics in common with young riesling; this modern style seems to be in part due to yeast selection and screwcaps, a combination enhancing citrus and pear fruit on the bouquet, reappearing on the finish and aftertaste.
