Drayton's Family Wines Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Made by new winemaker Edgar Vale, it's a blend of Hunter Valley Semillon (88%) and Orange Sauvignon Blanc (12%).

The wine throws out lots of tropical and melon aromas with a smidge of honey. It's light and fresh and going off this, I was keen to see what was next.

What followed was a simple wine which didn't scale any lofty heights.
Flavours were thin, watery even. A long finish which did surprise. 

I can see the appeal the wine would have for some but it's not one for me.
