2018 Ivan­hoe Semil­lon

Halliday - - Semillon -

Wine­maker: Gary Reed Vigneron: Stephen Dray­ton This wine starts with a fresh and lively nose, with lifted notes of cit­rus fol­lowed with lemon and lime tan­ta­lis­ing the palate with a crisp, acidic fin­ish. A light and re­fresh­ing, es­tate-grown semil­lon.

What do you look for in your semil­lon? Typ­i­cal Hunter semil­lon char­ac­ter­is­tics of lemon and lime, bal­anced with an acidic fin­ish. Vi­brant and re­fresh­ing when young, it has delicious, toasted honey flavours when aged. Grown on free-drain­ing al­lu­vial soils in Pokol­bin, our 2018 vin­tage is a true ex­pres­sion of Hunter Val­ley semil­lon.
