Drayton's Family Wines Semillon 2013

Another light and fresh type from Draytons. Honeydew melon and fresh cut herb aromas are the highlights but nothing to get too excited about.

Green apple flavours wrapped up by some crunchy acid. There is some textural appeal but the slippery feel on the finish came across as though the wine lacked polish. The oil from some pan fried fish would remove this I suspect.

For $20, there are other Semillons I would lean towards.
