My my this an affable beast. The sort of wine that could help bring people over from less interesting Sauvignon Blanc.
What makes it work is the slightly more expressive style – there is the classic green apple acidity, yet with a little more red apple fruit generosity. It still finishes clean, the flavours are suitably intense and it will probably look even better in a few years time – what more can you ask for?
It’s perhaps not a classic Hunter Semillon because of the extra flesh, but everything else lines up very nicely indeed. I’d drink this for sure.
Tasted: February 2014
Score: 17.5/20, 91/100
Would I buy it? I’d finish a half bottle of this for sure
