2019 Fordwich Hill Semillon
Situated on the western fringe of the lower Hunter Valley, the slightly lower annual rainfall and red volcanic soils of the Broke Fordwich subregion combine to produce relatively early ripening Semillon with distinctive tropical aromatics. The fruit is allowed to ripen more than the classically styled Semillons, resulting in a contemporary expression of Hunter Semillon providing an excellent early drinking, food friendly style.
Glowing in its star bright green/gold hue, this wine displays a more generous expression of Hunter Valley semillon. Stone fruit, melon and a hint of grassiness over gentle tropical fruit characters are the wine’s forte. There’s some fine detail amongst the concentrated palate, with citrus fruit playing second fiddle to some tropical fruit richness within a featherweight frame. It's gentle acidity provides an attractive early drinking style of Hunter Semillon.
