Overview & Tasting Notes
Bright colour with a youthful green hue. The nose shows only a hint of toasty bottle age development behind its prominent citrus fruit profile. This wine already shows all the characteristics of a semi mature Hunter semillon, with its wonderful balance between youth and age. A core of citrus fruit, with the palate just starting to fill out with some bottle age and the acid beginning to soften into what is a seamlessly structured wine.

91 Points…classic notes of slightly evolved Hunter Semillon: toast, lemongrass, fresh hay and lime juice with touches of chalk dust and dried apple slices. Light-bodied, dry and very crisp, it fills the palate with mouth-watering citrus flavors, finishing long and minerally. Approachable now, it should cellar to 2020+
95 Points & Outstanding - A classic and wonderfully expressive Hunter bouquet, with lemon curd, toast and straw; the palate is very lively, and while at face value this appears forward, the tension on the finish provides length and complexity, pointing to a healthy future.
90 Points - Bright medium yellow colour; some age here, but it’s nice and fresh. Cedary, nutty and toasty developed character with a touch of reduction perhaps. Then a fuller, broader wine with a little fruit-sweetness, and perhaps lacks a little finesse. Some green herbal notes beneath the aged character.
Drinking nicely now but just a baby yet in the semillon stakes and will benefit with a few more years in the bottle. Pristine citrus fruit flavours and a lively acidic backbone.
88 Points - Light lemon, lime, cashew, floral, green apple, nutty, nectarine skin and slate aromas. Fresh, delicate, light and juicy with green apple, nectarine, and spicy, floral, lime flavours. Fresh, young and a bit austere, could use a bit more bottle time.
