2016 BackVintage Hunter Valley Semillon - New!
Tasting Notes by Nick Bulleid MW
Background

The grapes for this wine were grown on volcanic silt soil in the Broke Fordwich area. This subregion of the Lower Hunter makes white wines with more fullness and softer finish than the Pokolbin area to the east. The perfect growing season leading up to the 2016 vintage resulted in a high natural acidity, which sits perfectly with the fresh citrus flavours and a hint of tropical notes.


Tasting Notes

Colour
Pale lemon yellow

Nose
Fresh lemongrass and hay aromas.

Structure / Palate
This is a classic Hunter Semillon from an excellent year – delicate, fresh and crisp in its youth, and delicious now by itself or with salads and delicate fish. It has the potential to soften, fill out in flavour and gain wonderful toasty and lemon curd complexity past 2020, suiting as it does more flavoursome seafood dishes and white meats
