    Winemaker's Notes:

    Excellent, luminous green/yellow color. Lifted zesty, lemongrass aromas with some sweet apple blossom characters. Fruit dominant on the palate but typical tight structure with citrus acid finish. Initial lime plus cut grass flavors. Perfect balance of fruit, alcohol and acid. An impressive Semillon from a year that will reward early drinking or cellaring.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very pale straw-green; the wine has a delicate yet positive flowery bouquet, hinting at what is to come on the vivid mid-palate, with citrus to the fore, and background touches of stone fruits, the zesty acidity cleanses the finish and guarantees a long life if you wish to cellar it.

    The clear, platinum-like color sets this up as a classic, unwooded Hunter semillon. Like the color, its flavors are nearly invisible, ghosting nutty wheat and green apple, buzzing with malic acidity. With air and each subsequent taste, the flavors grow increasingly long. The lovely brisk balance predicts this will age with grace; for drinking ten to 12 years out with grilled prawns or langoustines.

    Pale yellow. Pungent lime, capsicum, minerals and fresh herbs on the nose. Then densely packed and light on its feet, with a refreshing quality to its lime zest, lemongrass and fresh herb flavors. Impressively energetic and tangy on the back end, which is concentrated, dry and uncompromising. This racy, distinctive wine could easily be snuck into a blind tasting of dry rieslings.

    The 2009 Hunter Valley Semillon provides a bit more weight and alcohol (11%) than the 2008, with intense aromas of fresh pears, white peach, lemongrass and jasmine. There is really nice tension, a tad youthful but approachable now with lots of citrus and stone fruit flavors, a yeasty/honeyed character lending balance to the acid, and a silken texture as well as a long finish. Drink 2010-2018.
