The colour is just the vaguest hint of lemon. The nose confirms this as very much the modern form of Hunter Sem – while retaining the ability to age for many years, there is also flavour galore in its early days. Good intensity and pinpoint focus with excellent length and a fine line of acidity. Lemon drop notes, fresh citrus, hints of ginger – a wine which dances. Fresh, balanced, full of life and very long, enjoy this now but please put a case away to share over the next decade. Try this, put a case of this away for a decade and at the same time, a case of a good Premier Cru Burgundy which costs five or six times as much, and then see which you prefer. You’ll wonder why you waste money on famous wines. Date: Dec 2022; Price: 28.00; Drink: 2022-2032; Rating: 95 Points; Ken Gargett; Wine Pilot
Wet growing conditions that prevailed through to January ’22 were well-managed across the patchwork quilt of vineyards spread across the Hunter. Flavours of lemongrass, citrus and lanolin all contributing, this has the balance and length to transform itself over the next five years.
