Tulloch Vineyard Selection Semillon 2013 (Hunter Valley, NSW)
My my this an affable beast. The sort of wine that could help bring people over from less interesting Sauvignon Blanc.
What makes it work is the slightly more expressive style – there is the classic green apple acidity, yet with a little more red apple fruit generosity. It still finishes clean, the flavours are suitably intense and it will probably look even better in a few years time – what more can you ask for?
It’s perhaps not a classic Hunter Semillon because of the extra flesh, but everything else lines up very nicely indeed. I’d drink this for sure.
