Brokenwood Semillon 2017

The 2018 vintage is starting to wrap up in the Hunter Valley, which means that the very first commercial wines from this vintage won’t be far away! Semillon is the mainstay of Hunter Valley white grapes and makes truly one of the wine world’s gems.

Brokenwood, Semillon, Hunter Valley, 2017

 

Bright, clear light-gold with green highlights. It opens with chalky, flinty aromas with an almost navel orange citrus perfume with lime hints. The wine gives up rich citrus body and a soft chalky texture before putting the screws on and finishing with traditional Hunter acidity. Approachable, balanced and versatile. Simply a delicious drink.

RRP: $28
Alc: 11%
