Beginning its journey into tertiary development. Subtle hints of toast, wet wool and butter notes of medium – intensity. Tighter more refined elegant palate than HVD Semillon. Acid supports the wine until the lemon primary fruit finish kicks in. Overall better acid profile a hint leaner than HVD. Grown in the south of the region on sand with some clay.
Tyrrell’s Stevens Vineyard Semillon 2016, 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.
