Blessed with another fantastic Vintage in the Hunter, our 2018 Elliott Semillon exhibits effects climate may have in producing two very different wines from the same place.
We picked the fruit slightly riper in 2018 than 2017 and this shows on both the nose and palate. Aromas of lemongrass, sherbet and subtle tropical hints give truth to the riper vintage. While on the palate we see a more generous mouthfeel, a roundness to the finish but also with that tangy, citrus acidity we love about Semillon. Not going to age as long as the ’17 but much more approachable in its youth.
What is the match? White fish is perfect. A simple citrus pan-fried snapper with a fresh rocket and parmesan salad drizzled with olive oil and lemon juice will be fine.
