Clean, fresh and pure. The 2023 Hunter Valley vintage is said to be better for reds but this is a very tidy expression of Semillon.
For an off-dry Semillon, this hits the mark. The texture from skins is evident and the delish factor is high. A smart wine from Gundog Estate.

The Hunter Valley has no peer when it comes to Semillon. Be it fresh and vibrant new releases or a cellar release with some time under its belt, these wines done well are 'semsational'. This pristine 2018 from Mount Pleasant is proof of that.

The first Hunter Valley Semillon hits the tasting bench for 2023. Full of energy and zip, find the seafood platter and a large pour of this.

Risk It For The Biscuit - one of those fascinating names for a wine. There is a great mouthfeel and presence with this Semillon. I've encountered some Barossa Semillon that has just been a hot mess - overripe and gloopy. This is a fabulous wine that is neatly balanced and shows bright fruit.

Go back to 2013 and this Dairy Hill Semillon was winning every trophy under the sun and deservedly so. With a proven ability to age, it's a wine worth adding to your black book.
I really love this label. What a fine tribute to the late Karl Stockhausen who did so much for the Hunter Valley. This Semillon exudes some cool summer vibes.

As per the label, "Semillon, the Lone Wolf, a somewhat misunderstood creature, is spirited and luminous at heart." These 9th Fable wines are part of Usher Tinkler's export wines heading to Colorado, USA. Quality seeps through its pores.
