2014 Vanguardist 'HVB' Semillon


Gary Walsh - The Wine Front, 08 March 2016.

Spends 35 days on skins (25% of it, anyway), old oak and all that. Cork a daft choice for closure, but anyway.

"Very good drinking early, which you can’t often say of some more traditional Hunter Semillon. Spice, honey, quince and citrus, some funky cheesy flavours. It’s fleshy and chalky, toast and honey, something like a mandarin flavour and acidity, and a smooth spicy finish, tinged with lime. Like this a lot." 92 Points
