Virtual Tasting Pack 3
2013 Howard Vineyard Semillon, Hunter Valley NSW
The warmer weather has resulted in great fruit intensity. The colours in 2013 are outstanding, lots of luminous green tints. On release at nearly 6 years bottle age, there is a hint of development with toast and brioche notes. Flavours of lime juice cordial, lemon zest and the tangy acidity aids the long finish. A beautiful example of Hunter Semillon – perfect now or over the next 10 years.
2017 Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot, McLaren Vale SA/Margaret River WA
Excellent colour with medium to deep density and purple hues. Lovely sweet cedar notes from the Cabernet and background vanillin and nutmeg from the French oak. Sweet fruit up front on the palate with Turkish Delight and dark
pastille flavours. Fine tannins carry to finish. An immensely enjoyable wine.
