Tyrrell’s, Winemaker’s Selection, Vat 1 Semillon 2009, Hunter Valley, New South Wales, Australia
Tasting Note: A semillon that proves the grape varietal’s ability to transform into something special with age.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of freshly-baked brioche, quince, pear compote, crushed almond, green-apple blossom and communion wafer.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied semillon has bright, medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by high acidity and completing with a long, tart, green-fruit finish.
The wine persists long after the taste and will make you smile.
This semillon has a creamy, yet chalky texture in midpalate.
Varietal typicity galore.
Price: $100+ AUD
