Semillon 2017 – Black Market Deal #34616
- Hunter Valley
Hunter Valley is Australia’s home of semillon. And this producer is amongst the finest in the region. We all know that semillon starts off crisp and herbaceous, slowly transforming into something honeyed and nutty as it ages. This one sits right in the middle...call it a young adult if you will. It still has all the citrus, freshness and vibrancy of youth, but there are hints of honeysuckle and almond just starting to push through. Drink it now or lay it down for a long long while. It just depends on how you like your semillon.
What is a Black Market deal?
Black Market deals are only made possible if we don’t reveal the maker’s brand on site. The wines are the genuine article – absolutely no cleanskins or fake brands, just dangerously good value. You won’t find out what it is until it hits your doorstep, but you won’t regret it. Just keep it on the down low.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

The Hunter Valley is one of the brightest jewels in Australia's vinous crown. Not only does the region produce some of the best Shiraz and alternative reds in the country, but it has a style of white unique in the world of wine: Hunter Semillon. This is the White Burgundy of Australia in more ways than one, and even used to be labelled as such in the early days. No other place can produce such intense, low alcohol, seemingly light Semillons that blossom with age into full-bodied, massively complex wines that can age for decades. Producers the likes of Tyrrell's and Brokenwood take Hunter to new heights, year upon year.
