Mistletoe Reserve Semillon

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2010 Vintage) says
Excellent Hunter semillon, with streamlined shape, presence and drive, its punchy, pungent aroma of melon, tobacco and minerals reveals a hint of peach and lemon zest. Long, taut and classically dry, its concentrated fruit is backed by a tightly knit spine of powdery phenolics, assertively finishing with intense flavours and a bracing acidity.

Minerally lime aromas with some nice toastiness. Lean and well-balanced, fresh citrus palate with good length and intensity. Cellar it. 5+

Fresh and focused; taut and complete. A waxy, smoky bouquet of honeydew melon, lemon and white flowers reveals a hint of herbaceousness. Generous and juicy despite a mere 10% alcohol, it's zesty and mineral, with a bright, racy core of fruit finishing with effortless length of flavour tightly sculpted around a refreshing punctuation of lime juice acidity.

It's well worth stepping up to this bargain reserve-level bottling; there's super-fresh lemon citrus and some really concentrated lemon oil smells - impressive nose. The palate's a savoury, crisp crunchy acid style, pristine flavours stop for nothing, riding fast and long on racy acidity. Brilliant!

A modern impression of a timeless classic, this long, tightly focused and finely sculpted semillon presents a pristine and juicy expression of melon, lemon and guava-like flavour backed by a chalky lick of minerality. It's delicate and dusty, with a particularly floral bouquet and a layered, savoury palate that culminates in a tangy, dry and briney finish. Stupendous value!

Another cracker Hunter semillon from an excellent vintage. And since most of the small production is not intended for release for a few years, now is your chance to get in cheaply and cellar it yourself. (You might have to contact the winery direct.) It's spent quite a while on lees, and the winery attributes the minerally character to 'lighter, sandy soils' where the fruit was grown. Enough here to suggest this is a winery to watch.
