Hunter Valley Semillon
You probably wouldn’t find a wine expert in the world who wouldn’t acknowledge that the Hunter Valley is the world’s best Semillon region. It’s our white wine flagship, thriving in the Hunter, especially in those dried up, sandy river beds.
Hunter Valley Semillon has lemon and lime flavours, citrusy crispness and a natural, lively acid. It can be enjoyed as a youngster on a hot day, or you can take advantage of its wonderful ageing potential – 10 years plus easily. With age you get honeyed flavours and some toasty notes. Still delicious, but very different to its youth.
And if you want something different again, quite a few wineries are producing a sweeter, off-dry style of Semillon - drinking at its easiest.
But no matter how old you like to drink your Semillon, there’s one thing you can be sure of: have it with seafood – white-fleshed fish, prawns, crab, lobster – and you’ll see it go to another level. Enjoy.
