Tasting Notes

Bright, light-yellow colour; young for its years, as is the nose. It has lemon juice, lemon pith and baked lemon pudding aromas, and no signs of greeness. Signs of toastiness are barely apparent at this stage. The wine is likewise fresh, bright and young in the mouth, starting to show traces of the honey that will build with further age. Deliciously intense and delicate at the same time, with refreshing but seamless acidity, and a long carry. A gorgeous wine, an archetyal Hunter semillon that has benefitted from some age but has barely begun to enter its second phase. A great, classic wine. Tasted Feb 2021. Huon Hooke
