2022 Stanleigh Park Vineyard Semillon

2022 Stanleigh Park Vineyard Semillon

Hunter Valley, NSW

At two years of age on release, this wine still has a lovely pale yellow colour with green tints, showing the wines capacity for longevity. A fragrant nose showing lemongrass and kaffir lime leaf aromas typical of young Hunter Semillon. These characters continue onto the palate with a wonderful fruit weight which is complimented by the perfect acid structure, which keeps the flavour lingering. A wine that is drinking well now but will only build in complexity if given time.

Winemaker Comments
This the first release from the Stanleigh Park Vineyard since the outstanding 2013 vintage. Stanleigh Park Vineyard is located on the sandy alluvial soil on the banks of Black Creek, in the Hunter Valley sub-region of Lovedale. 2022 is a season with many similarities to 2021 but overall of higher quality. La Nina once again made for a cool, wet season albeit tempered by consistent breeze, which kept the canopy dry and disease at bay. Pokolbin had reached its annual rainfall by the end of November, with it being the wettest November on record. We ended up receiving 956mm for 2021. One of the latest harvests in the Hunter in many years. This wine has had an excellent start to its show career picking up Gold medals at the 2022 Hunter Valley Wine Show, the NSW Wine Awards and The Royal Melbourne Wine Awards. It backed this up by also picking up a Gold medal as a one year old, at the 2023 Hunter Wine Show.
Food Pairing
