The Wine Front ~ "Juicy, lemony, refreshing, pure and highly drinkable....Scents of steel and lemon juice, touch of cut grass, sniff of grapefruit pith." The Winemaker "Early rains and a later ripening harvest than 2015 has produced a typical lime pith/juice flavours making a fragrant Semillon. The colour is perfect with lots of luminous green tints. Only 10.5% alcohol, the palate shows great fruit intensity, some hay-like notes and a zesty citrus acidity on the finish. The flavours linger on for quite some time, a classic Hunter Valley wine."
