Huntington Estate Special Reserve Semillon 2017

"I love Semillon's freshness, crispness and ease of drinking. Best of all, I love its versatility," says Huntington Estate owner Tim Stevens. He has fulfilled the brief here too, that's for sure.


A wine which comes across restrained and reserved. A little too shy for show but wants to peek around the corner to see what's there. Give it time and it grows in confidence to show its full self.

Certainly fresh and crisp, it's the delicate fruit presence which is what I am liking the look of. The third release of this label, citrus, shades of tropical fruit and handfuls of cut herb to show. Only free run juice was used in this wine to reduce phenolics. Good acid cleanses the mouth - it's a wine which calls for lazy days under shady trees or picnics by the water. Fresh seafood would be a perfect partner. This would be a wine sure impress after a number of years in a dark place.
