Tasting Notes

Pale straw-green - an extraordinary colour of an extraordinary wine. A fragrant bouquet floats out of the glass and introduces a palate that has the best of all worlds: lemon, lemon curd, beeswax and fruit spice with no hint of the searing acidity Hunter Valley semillon can throw at the unwary. Here it is perfectly (and naturally) balanced.

James Halliday, Wine Companion, March 2020

A great rendition of this unique Hunter Valley style. Has a very fresh, attractive nose with a gently waxy edge, as well as grassy notes and pristine lemon peel. The combination of primary fruit freshness and steady development in bottle is good here. The palate has a very sleek, concentrated delivery of quite pure lemon. The concentrated fruit is folded snugly around a long line of acidity. Drink now, or cellar for a decade plus. Screw cap.
