Mount Pleasant Elizabeth Semillon 2007

Hunter, New South Wales, AustraliaCurrent vintage available in BCLS stores. Sémillon is a very interesting grape. When young, it is fresh and citrus and lively. When it's aged, it's honeyed, oily, nutty and waxen. In between, it can be a bit funky and closed-off (think about your teenage years). This Hunter Valley semillon is in the midst of adolescence right now. There's green apple and lemon meringue pie zippiness, set against a base of concentrated herbal, funky, parmesan lees. Whiffs of honeysuckle mingle with whiffs of lemon thistle and linger with an alpine medicinal herbaceousness. If you have this vintage in your cellar, I recommend waiting a few more years for the awkward teenage phase to pass. You also remember, it does.Tasted: 01 March 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 20.99 BCLS Producer: Mount Pleasant WinesCSPC: 664862UPC: 9311769802004
