Meerea Park Alexander Munro Semillon 2012


The Alexander Munro range is released at five years. The fruit for this Semillon comes from the Hunter Valley's famed Braemore vineyard.

Curious aromas of gooseberry and cut capsicum, there's a leafy character to the fruit too. I can't get it out of my head that perhaps this is just a little under ripe. There's a trail of greenness that runs through the wine. Though still a pup, there is clearly longevity here.

As it moves into an aging phase, waxy characters are starting to show their hand. This mid palate lies a bit thin though the finish ticks away nicely. Time will never beat this wine. Keep it in a dark place for another few years before you'll see it's better side.
