What a difference a year makes. This walks to a different beat compared to the 2016 Semillon.
Coming off 47 year old vines, this 'Special Reserve' Semillon is the first of its type released by Huntington Estate.
To use a word, it comes across richer than you'd expect yet it's still as fresh as a daisy. Toasty and pithy, it grabs at you hard - in a nice way. Lemon zest tang sits in the background. The fruit is well weighted, and like the 2016, this is growing on me as time goes by. Long to finish, hang time is impressive too.
A pinch of acidity points this well towards long cellaring.
Great buying for the asking price. Time will easily be its friend if cellaring Semillon is your thing.
