Classic nose full of lemons and lanolin but also nutty marzipan notes. This must come from some time spent on yeast lees which helps to broaden the aromatics and palate. The wine is still lively and fresh on the palate with lemon and limes dominating. Enjoyable young semillon and well priced
Tyrrell’s Hunter Valley Semillon 2022, 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.
