Very nice wine, this. Hunter Valley Semillon is a unique style of wine. Pale, fresh, light in youth, yet ages brilliantly. And it comes from a very warm wine region. A vinous paradox. This is a good one at a nice price, ready to drink now.
Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Bottle-Aged Semillon 2006 Hunter Valley, Australia
10.5% alcohol. Made by McWilliams. This is a really impressive example of the unique Semillons from the Hunter Valley, which age beautifully in bottle. It has lovely intense lemony, nutty, toasty flavours with some honeysuckle floral notes and a bit of pithiness. Impressive and good value for money. 90/100 (£8.99 Sainsbury’s)
