Sparkling Semillon is a bit of a Hunter speciality and it works pretty well to make a delicate and elegant bubbly. It is light, a little fruity and delicious.
The Semillon for this wine is a blend of many great vineyard sites
within the Upper and Lower Hunter Valley.
Appearance: Medium to full yellow green, with fine to medium bead.
Nose: Highly aromatic bouquet with citrus and lime overtones and just a
hint of baked bread.
Palate: The palate is elegant with plenty of tangy fruit flavours, some
richness from the secondary fermentation process and a small
amount of residual sweetness retained in the wine.
Food: Ideal aperitif style. A great accompaniment with shellfish, seafood,
white meats and salads, or perfectly suited to enjoy with canapés.
Cellaring: As a non vintage blend it is bottled three to four times during each
calendar year to keep each batch as fresh and vibrant as possible. Enjoy whilst young and fresh over the next two years.
