A typical Hunter semillon nose consisting of lemon, lanolin and pear. Fresh lemon driven wine on the palate with a good crisp palate to support some (7gms) of residual sugar that makes this wine sing happily in the off dry spectrum. It’s a delightful drink for summer. The Hunter is expanding it’s repertoire of wines made from semillon with these styles to support the classic dry styles. Add the ‘cellar release’ wines and you have a least three styles to explore. Well done Mistletoe for this representative.

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.
