The cool year has resulted in more grass/hay fruit characters. The colour is perfect, lots of luminous green tints. There are citrus notes to the aromas as well. Lighter, fresh lime and lemongrass flavours on release as a young wine. Great acidity, and the 10.5% alcohol is perfect for summer drinking.

If we have said it once, we have said it a million times, the word normal just doesn’t exist for the Hunter Valley. There was a three week turn around in picking compared to 2014, and most Semillon was off in the last week of January. It was a very dry winter of 2014 with only 54mm of rain from May to July. A very good budburst and spring, but then a cold and wet December resulting in quite large canopies and disease pressure. Thankfully all of our Semillon is handpicked and the vineyard team did a great job of getting clean, sound fruit in. This vintage is stylistically on song, but a smaller production of Semillon than usual. All fruit was harvested before the damaging East Coast low wreaked havoc on the Hunter Valley.
