Background

The ‘XYZ’ brand wines constitute modern styles of Semillon, Chardonnay and Shiraz. New Generation wines from the Hunter Valley.

Vineyard Notes

Grapes used to make this Semillon was sourced from the old-vine vine ‘Lochleven’, ’Casuarina’ and ’Braemore’ vineyards, all in Pokolbin.

Winemaking

2021 returned to vintage normality for the Hunter Valley after prolonged drought and then the bushfires of 2020. Reduced yields continued despite good winter rain. Semillon flourishes in the cooler years and usually makes restrained and very cellar worthy wines.

Tasting Notes

Very light, almost clear colour with a green tinge. There is a lemon zest nose with lemon sherbert like aromas. The palate is delicate but flavoursome, kept fresh with pitch perfect acidity and typical lemon/lime/citrus flavours. It has great line and length.

Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential

Medium term.

Food Matches

Fresh and cooked seafood, including oysters, prawns and white fish.
