Semillon’s traditional home is in Bordeaux, where it is nearly always blended with Sauvignon Blanc. This style is emulated with great success in Western Australia. Australia, uniquely, also produces high quality wine solely from Semillon. Hunter Valley Semillon, with its crisp citrus flavours and its exceptional ability to develop with age, is one of Australia’s great contributions to the world of wine.
Floral aromas on the nose and soft lemon citrus flavours are the hallmark of this classic Hunter Semillon. A light, fresh structure and a cleansing finish make this wine a great alternative to Sauvignon Blanc or Riesling. An ideal partner for fresh seafood.
Item Code: ITM1370
Pale green in colour with lifted floral and citrus aromas. On the
palate, sweet pear and crunchy apple flavours are balanced by limey
acidity creating a refreshing off-dry finish.
Item Code: ITM5031
Distinctive lemongrass and floral aromas that continue onto the palate. Bright lime, lemon and apple fruit flavours are met by a pure acid structure which offers balance and lovely length. A classic Hunter Semillon that can be enjoyed now but also shows the potential to age gracefully.
Item Code: ITM5751
A classic young Hunter Semillon showing an excellent balance of lemon/lemongrass flavours and structural acidity. The wine is drinking beautifully now but will certainly develop further complexity with time in the cellar. Expect it to begin to develop rich, toasty characters after five or so years.
Item Code: ITM5919
Sourced from Major Lane Vineyard, which has consistently some of the Hunters most outstanding Semillons, and this wine is no different. Subtle aromatics of citrus and floral notes. The palate displays an amazing structure made up of a refreshing line of acidity leading to a finish of great length and flavour.
