Tyrrell’s, Stevens Vineyard, Semillon, Hunter Valley, 2014

6 Years old and pure light lemon/green bright in the glass. Soft and expressive notes of Hunter purity with moments of forwardness from the vintage (hints of light toasty/barley sugar crystal). The power is still evident, that whisker of maturity/depth and limey citrus fruit richness providing a base to the still fresh, vibrant and precise acidity and a lightly chalky finish.

RRP: $40
Alc: 12%
Rating: 18.75/20 (94/100)
