2016 Margan Original Hunter Valley Semillon

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Andrew Margan is certainly no stranger when it comes to Hunter Sem, having crafted some of the region's top whites since 1989. This Margan Original Hunter Valley Semillon shows the mastery that comes from over 25 vintages, built in a timeless style that will help it live forever (and ever).

Simply put, if you appreciate the beauty of a fine Hunter Semillon, then this 5 star performer is just mega hard to resist.

Winemaker's Notes

The perfect growing season leading up to the 2016 vintage resulted in a high natural acidity, which sits perfectly with the fresh citrus flavours and a hint of tropical notes. Perfect to drink now, but will become more complex given a bit of time.

The juice was fermented under temperature controlled conditions to ensure freshness and express true varietal characters. No oak was used, typical of Hunter Semillon.

Alc/vol: 12.5%

2016 Margan Original Hunter Valley Semillon

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2015 Vintage) says
Has everything you could ask for in a young Hunter Valley semillon: bright strawgreen hue, a lemongrass and citrus bouquet, then a long, intense palate built on the foundation of natural acidity. There is ample flavour now, but the whole life of the wine lies before it, as the citrus becomes honeyed, and finally some toasty nuances will appear.
