Elizabeth is a classic Hunter Valley white which has established itself as one of Australia’s benchmark Semillons. It has won fifty trophies and multi gold throughout it's long and illustrious history. Originally released in 1967 under the label Hunter Riesling, Elizabeth today stands as a praiseworthy and approachable example of the uniquely Hunter Valley Semillon style.
Grass, lemongrass and a faint hint of talc; a generous palate with ripe Meyer lemon fruit and a faint echo of stone fruit, its generosity achieved without the loss of finesse or length. It is one of those uncommon semillons that will be equally enjoyable through its long life, however much complexity it will gain with age. Taste the '06 and you will understand its future. Alcohol: 11%. Closure: screwcap. Date tasted: March 2014. Drink by: 2028. Rating: 94/100; James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion
