Gundog Estate Vernon Vineyard Semillon 2014


The Vernon Vineyard hails from Mt View - a gorgeous part of the Hunter Valley. While you're there you should eat at Bistro Molines. Just do it. Super Semillon this too - double thumbs up.


Dry grown, this wine has the highest alcohol of the three Single Vineyard Semillons at 12.1% (Somerset 10.9%, Sunshine 11.8%).

Tight and intense, the game face is on for sure. Cut herbs, lemon juice and gooseberry aromas flow through to juicy citrus with gooseberry back at it. More textural than the other two Single Vineyard wines, it's waxy too. An excellent expression but it may not be everyone's cup of tea but it's on point for Semillon purists. I dig it.
