Overview

This true Hunter style Semillon is a fresh light wine when young, then develops rich honey and toast characters with extended cellaring.

The 2020 season has to be regarded as one of the most challenging on record. The most savage drought in memory had resulted in numerous vines dying and yields being low in the extreme. This was then coupled with fires which added another layer of difficulty. The fruit for this wine was harvested from the Hunter Ridge Vineyard which was the only Semillon not tainted by smoke. (analytically checked prior to harvest).
