Pungent tropical fruit nose with passion fruit and ripe lemons. Dry wine with a vibrant, fleshy, zesty lemon driven palate. A hint of pineapple and ripe red apple on the long finish. Grown in the Broke Fordwich sub region on red volcanic soils results in a riper wine slightly earlier picked than the main valley.
Thomas Fordwich Hill Semillon, Hunter Valley, NSW
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.
