Pepper Tree Limited Release Tallawanta Semillon 2012
Made from single vineyard fruit, there was plenty of lemon flavours and the apple chimed in nicely too. I loved the acid. It was lean, not cutting nor crunchy which is common with many new release Semillons. If anything, the softness of the acid could lead you thinking the wine was older than it was.
A perfect drop to drink on its own without the need for food, though seafood screams out for this baby. Very well structured and the flavours punch through nicely to a long finish.
Man I liked it and I'd love to see where this is at in five years.
Great buying for $28.
