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

Delicate but adamant. Leafy lime citrus, lemon verbena, vanilla flower a touch of spiced sweaty apple. Primary, quiet, flesh yet with finesse. Such well reined acidity: still so balanced and just starting to integrate. A wine of presence and longevity.

RRP: $40
Alc: 10.5%
Rating: 19/20 (95/100)
