2023 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 and stone fruit aromatics. This vineyard is allowed to ripen more than our classically styled Semillons resulting in a more generous, 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. Its gentle acidity provides an attractive early drinking style of Hunter Semillon.
