2021 Charteris Hunter Valley Semillon (dozen)

Pale lemon yellow with a green fleck in the glass. Lemons and lemongrass with Kaffir Lime leaf, a hint of lavender, white florals bath salts and Lemon sorbet – dehydrated and sprinkled as dust in the glass. A hint of rock melon and green papaya too adding depth and volume to the aroma

Gentle entry with subtle lemon giving way to finger lime and Botanical complexity, a hint of the Gin and Tonics about this wine.

There is silky smooth acidity which gives just the right glide to the texture while maintaining length and vitality. The finish is endearing with a hint of juicy grapefruit, underlying passionfruit and a salty mineral pinch for a clean refined exit. Long and salivating.

Pretty sumptuous drinking now for Hunter Semillon, but there is a race to run for this wine, the next 5 years will be just the beginning.
