2009 Eagles Rest Gully Block Semillon
Classic Hunter Valley characters of Lemon zest and Talc with a hint of citrus blossom and lavender define the aroma. There is some pine and lime lift as well. Great purity. Citrus flavours flow through to the palate framed with a fine acid backbone and a juicy fruit driven finish. This wine has great length and finesse, which will see this wine develop into a classic aged Hunter Semillon style.
"Extraordinarily pale quartz-green; the bouquet has flowered magically over the past 6 years, full of lemongrass, talc and (yes) a faint waft of lavender; the palate is commensurately intense and complex, with grapefruit pith, dried herbs and crunchy acidity" - James Halliday Wine Companion 2016
