Meerea Park Hell Hole Semillon 2013

Semillon can be a bit like Riesling. By that I mean excellent drinking and relatively inexpensive for what you get. Have it fresh or hold off and be rewarded furthermore a few years later.

I loved this drop. A cracking wine and easy on the pocket for the quality delivered.

Slight golden in appearance, tropical aromas spill from the glass along with grassy and green been characters. There is a textural element to the wine which coats the palate with apple skin like flavours. Throw in some lemon and tropical fruit and it's time to yank the chain on the flavour train. The length lingers and the wine is oh so slurpable.

A great example of a 2013 Hunter Semillon which will cellar for at least a decade.

A wine well worth hunting down.
