    Winemaker's Notes:

    As always, a beautiful color with luminous greens. Distinctive Hunter lemongrass/straw aromas as a young wine. Sweet fruit flavors initially on the palate indicating perfect ripeness at harvest and in fact a bit riper than usual. Excellent acid structure, long flavors of lime and apple blossom. Perfect in its youth and a wine that will bottle age gracefully.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Pale quartz-green; right in the mainstream of Hunter Valley semillon, still delicate on the bouquet, but with a palate full of nervous energy (nervosity in French) ad tingling citrus/lemongrass flavours running through to a very long finish.

    Pale yellow. High-pitched, mineral-driven aromas of lemon zest, talc and spearmint. Taut and juicy, showing citrus fruits, a hint of green apple and strong minerality. Picks up deeper melon and pear character with air and finishes dry and persistent. I like this wine's linear character.

    International Wine Cellar

    Deceptively simple in its clean, spicy line of flavor, this young semillon buzzes with beeswax, orange, lemon, grapefruit and litchi. It's bright, airy and refined, a white that will respond generously to bottle age.

    Acidic, lots of green apple, some clementine/mandarin. An enjoyable wine.

    Technically this wine is very good, but semillon is a very light bodied soft wine that is just not my general taste. Would use it however if I was pairing to a light soup or a light fish course.

    Really nice light wine- perfect for spring and summer. Acidic with bright citrus notes, a bit minerally, a hint of green apple. I would definitely order this again!
