Youthful but shy lanolin, talc, lemon, maybe a bit closed currently which can happen with some Hunter Semillons as they age. Dry with zesty thirst quenching acidity. Light bodied and all primary citrus fruits. After six years it’s not showing much aged, which bodes well for long term cellaring.

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
