Gundog Estate Wild Semillon 2018
What you want to drink with Asian inspired dishes. The back labels says, "This exciting wine pushes the boundaries of conventional Semillon production with the use of indigenous yeast, fermentation on skins, and an off-dry finish." Well, the KPIs have been nailed.
Spring flowers, pith, and lemon zest. Alluring textural grip keeps the interest levels high. The deft touch of residual sugar is well balanced by the fruit and cut acidity. Touches of stonefruit appear through the mouth with a good push from cut herbs and lemongrass coming late. Textural feels coat the palate softly and clutch at the heart urging for a repeat dose. Bloody enjoyable really.
Drink now to embrace the freshness or hold to eight years+ to see it develops more concentrated fruit characteristics.
