Allandale Aged Release Semillon

Expert Reviews

WINESTATE (2004 Vintage) says
Classic wine with an abundance of varietal fruit, crisp, racy acidity and toasty, honeyed characters developing.

WINESTATE (2003 Vintage) says
Classic rich and developed Hunter semillon. Subdued but complex aromas and brimming over with flavour on the silky-smooth palate with its crisp finish.
