In the glass this is clear light gold. On the nose you'll find notes of baked pineapple, tropical fruit, melon and beeswax. On the palate: Lemon zing and honeydew mingle with musk and white pepper - a pleasant nuttiness on the finish. Fresh, light to mid-weight and delicious, this is 11.5% alcohol and sealed with screwcap.
This was included in Halliday’s 2020 Top 100 Wines at the end of last year, in the ‘Top Whites under $25’ category - one of only two Semillons.
“There’s nothing usual about the depth of varietal fruit expression on the palate. Lemongrass/lemon curd flavours run throughout, Hunter acidity the staff of the long life ahead. Great success in a difficult vintage.” 95 points, James Halliday. Hardly a surprise that it also received a Special Value Award.
