2022 Estate Semillon

AUD $28.00 inc. gst

Zingy and fresh.

VARIETY Huntington’s flagship white grape, our Semillon is as age-worthy as those from our neighbours in the Hunter, but is more approachable when young thanks to a cooler, longer ripening period that allows us to preserve acids while better ripening the fruit. A Huntington Semillon is fresh, delicate and crisp. We love Semillon. It grows so well in Mudgee and is such a versatile grape. This is the perfect aperitif and Mrs Huntington's go to Friday night pre-dinner drink; it's also delicious with all seafood - from partnering the mineral purity of an oyster to adding freshness to a delicious battered piece of flathead.

90/100 "Opening aromas and flavours of straw, lemony musk with a hint of white pepper. It is minerally vibrant and currently tight with a crisp, zesty palate. This Huntington Estate 2022 Semillon expresses all the attributes of line, length and texture expected of a young cool-climate Semillon. It would suit fresh oysters but, quirkily, we enjoyed ours with a sesame oil-dressed freshly picked, home grown salad of mixed Asian greens." GILBERT LABOUR 2024

"A very appealing bouquet of florals with just a hint of lanolin & a splash of lemons. Delightful palate with vibrant, crispy apple & citrus flavours with a zesty refreshing finish. VERY MOREISH!!" DAN TRAUCKI 2024
