The wonderful thing about Hunter Valley semillon is that it is light, bright and zesty and lower in alcohol. This classically-styled offering from Hungerford Hill is just that, with smells and tastes of lemons, limes, chopped herbs and subtle toastiness all wrapped up in a taut package of zippy acidity, with soft edges of honey on the lip-smacking finish. It's the perfect seafood wine!
Quality Hunter Semillon in its youth is recognised for a seamless and impeccable balance of tight fruit flavour and fruit acid. While they are pleasant as young wines, the intensity of this relationship is the foundation on what observations may be made on a Semillon’s ageing potential. It is the character Semillon builds as it ages in bottle that places this particular variety in a unique category all of its own.
A lightly bodied and delicate wine with a soft but complete core of citrus fruit. Its racy and zestful palate is long and mouth-watering.
