Gundog Estate The Chase Semillon 2016

This is the last of the Gundog Estate wines I've had a look at from this batch of samples and the bar seems to keep getting higher and higher. What a way to finish!

A blend of a few Hunter vineyards, this has a little more depth than the Hunter's Semillon. I'd be tempted to tuck this one away for a few years whereas the Hunter's is certainly a drink now style.

Cut herbs, a squeeze of lemon and a lick of green apple skin. This is serious stuff, business suit stylin' even with the handkerchief in the top pocket - you get the picture. Sophisticated booze that talks the talk and walks the walk.

Semillon purists would find it hard to turn this away. Great buying for $30 too.

Drink with pleasure now but time may well produce something a little more special. Wait and see I guess.

94/100 - Very good+
