Growing Conditions

A tough vintage for certain areas of the valley. Rainfall was high, typical of what the Hunter can deliver, but the amazing ability of the vines to withstand these rain events truly astounds. The lead up to harvest was great, cool conditions, dry and lovely fruit set led to great crops at an average yield. The rainfall throughout vintage tested winemakers, with careful selective picking required to ensure the highest quality was achieved.

Palate

Lifted aromas of lemon/lime citrus, with a hint of waxy lanolin beginning to creep in. Top notes of white blossom, with a hint of honey, make this nose very inviting. The palate is crisp and youthful, with fresh citrus notes, over a flinty mineral character. The fine-boned acidity is focused and taut, keeping everything beautifully reined in through the finish. Long and detailed, it's a pure Hunter Semillon. Built to last.
