Brokenwood 2009 Semillon

It's an absolute mystery why Hunter Valley semillons are not more popular; they are zingy and zesty while young and then develop beautifully over time, emerging with honey/toasty characters. This is a spanking new vintage from one of the Hunter's most reliable wineries. It has delightful lemon/spice aromas and lovely citrus on the palate with some racy acid. At just 11% alcohol, this is far too easy to drink and would be fantastic with fish dishes or a seafood platter. $22.
