Semillon 2018 – Black Market Deal #39727
- Light, aromatic
- Hunter Valley
From a single low-yielding vineyard in the Hunter Valley comes this 2018 semillon. In chats with the producer, they were extremely excited about this wine. A Trophy and Gold Medal proves they were right to be so enthusiastic. Simply made with a destemming, press, ferment and fining/filtering, this is precision Hunter sem at its finest. There’s crisp citrus, bright acidity and a long finish. As with any good sem, this will of course age and develop well over a decade or so, but if you’re into the lemon and lime, crack it open soon.

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.
