The sheer value for money in this wine is what really bowled me over. For something that retails at just $25 (and is 49% off today) this humbly priced Hunter Sem was an unexpected knockout that I really didn't see coming. In case you've never come across them before, Margan Vineyards are a family owned winery with seven years of five red star status (the top 5% of wineries in the country) under their belt, likely due to the excellent wine making and 100 acres of premium vineyards they tend to.
A 2016 Hunter Semillon sourced from the winery's 50 year old vineyards, this is a tight little package of flavour and texture, replete with all that glorious Hunter Semillon 'je ne sais quoi' that devotees of the style will appreciate. Lime, blossom, apple and a heavier than usual palate weight plus ample fresh acidity makes this both suitable to drink now and cellar for the next 7- 8 years.
James Halliday: 'While there's the incisive racy acidity essential to see this through into its next phase, it's also injected with flavour and texture with a sensation of sweetness on the finish. Plus white blossom, camomile, kaffir lime leaves and lemongrass with chalk-like acidity.'
Jane Faulkner: 'At the full-bodied end of young semillon, offering scads of flavour for those looking to early consumption. If there is a touch of botrytis, it adds to the attraction at this early stage.'
Nose:Hand-picked and single-vineyard. Pristine natural acidity and fresh citrus characters are testament to glowing conditions leading up to the 2016 vintage..
Palate:There's a hint of tropical fruit that will continue to intensify with age. No use oak in this wine has encouraged true varietal definition.
Closure: Screw Cap
Bottle Size: 750ml
Campbell Mattinson says
Ripe and fleshy but with a dry finish. There’s almost a smokiness to this. Stonefruits and citrus lay out the foundations. No real need to wait for this; it’s singing now.
