De Iuliis Wines 2014 Hunter Valley Semillon

Hunter Valley semillon is one of Australia's greatest - and most under-rated - wine styles. Semillon is the iconic wine of the region, zesty in its youth but a style that matures over decades into a honeyed wine with toasty/brioche notes. This new release is very much at the fresh and lively end of the spectrum with bright citrus characters, a zingy acid backbone and crunchy crispness on the palate. It's great on its own, or with seafood dishes, or maybe oysters. And the good news is this is one of the best buys around - ludicrously good value. With an RRP of just $18, you'd have to be crazy not to snap up a few bottles.
