Review date: December 8, 2015

Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Semillon opens with a floral and light apple bouquet with a hint of cinnamon. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused light lemon with notes of gentle tart grapefruit. The finish is dry and its flavors linger slightly. This wine is very shellfish friendly. I would pair it with linguine with clam with a white wine and garlic broth. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The warmer weather has resulted in great fruit intensity. The colours in 2014 are outstanding, lots of luminous green tints. Lifted aromas of citrus/lemongrass notes. Sweet fruit flavours with great lime juice acidity. This is an outstanding young Hunter Valley Semillon and great drinking now or this will age gracefully if a more mature style is desired. Pair with Asian food, any seafood especially freshly shucked oysters.

Organic status: not organic
