expert reviews about
2014 James Estate Reserve Hunter Valley Fume Blanc
James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
A semillon/sauvignon blanc blend barrel-fermented in used French oak, the sauvignon blanc playing a nominal role obviously having been picked at a low baume level; this is all about lemony/grassy fruit and the textural contribution of the barrel ferment. The total package works very well, and is very good value with some years to go if you wish to see how it builds with age - as it will.
