2020 Synergy Semillon
This wine is a blend of selected parcels of old vine Hunter Valley Semillon that we are fortunate enough to have access to. The distictive characters of each vineyard work in synergy to create a wine with its own unique personality.
Part of what makes all our single-vineyard wines such benchmarks for the region, is the absolute no compromise approach to selecting only the very best parcels. This leaves behind a number of ‘de-classified’ parcels which we put together to create this blend. The lions share of the vineyards that would normally go together for our Synergy Semillon blend are the Braemore, OC and Fordwich Hill. However, the 2020 vintage Synergy Semillon is 100% Braemore Semillon. This wine delivers outstanding quality for every day drinking at an amazingly affordable price.

A brilliant pale yellow/green in colour, this wine has a generosity of fruit not usually expected in Hunter Semillon. Floral aromas of orange blossom, Thai spices and lanolin dance around the glass, and are kept in check by a linear, lime-like focus. The palate offers pleasing flavours with ripe pear and lemon/melon fruit, and a lengthy, subliminally taut acidity providing a pleasing freshness to the finish. An absolute perfect accompaniment to fresh seafood dishes. Seriously smashable…..
