Semillon 2017 – Black Market Deal #37621
- Fresh, juicy
- Hunter Valley
Semillon has a very proud and distinguished history in the Hunter Valley. Arguably, the region does it better than anywhere else in the country. It ages beautifully and is so exciting when young with this wine demonstrating just how vibrant it can be. If you’ve yet to dip your toe into the world of semillon, here’s the perfect entry point.
It’s super fresh which means you don’t get swamped by overt tropical fruit flavours, but what you do get is a precise, pure and pristine wine that feels so… clean. The palate is electric and is humming with grapefruit citrus acidity. It’s awesome to witness the evolution of semillon from the cellar too, so tuck a couple away for the next decade and notice how that texture really softens up.

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.
