2018 Semillon Hunter Valley

Iron Gate estate wines

This Semillon is quartz- green in colour with lifted, estery citrus bud, passionfruit and lemon-grass aromas. The refined palate possesses grapefruit and lime flavours and a refreshingly dry finish. This wine will mature well over the medium term, and with careful cellaring, the wine will develop bottle-aged toasty and lemon curd notes.

wine release

This wine was the first to be labelled under our Primera label, whose designation recognises that this wine was the best representation of our Semillon picked from our vineyard in this vintage year.

Quartz straw in colour, the wine has an amalgam of citrus bud and herbal aromas with a touch of bottle development. The palate is delicate with lemon /lime flavours and a drying sherbet-like acid finish. This wine will develop Hunter bottle aged characters in the next 2-5 years if matured with careful cellaring.

A lovely wine to accompany seafood, soups and poultry dishes.

food pairing

This wine would complement steamed fish or chicken dishes.
