James Estate 2013 Reserve Semillon

2011 bottle image
An excellent opener in a bracket of 5 Hunter Valley Semillon.

Lemon, sherbet, a briny/ oyster shell/ saline hanging in the breeze aroma. Fresh, one that invites, tickles the nasal cavity.

The palate shows a wine in glorious youth: racy, zesty and with an excellent acid line coursing through, with a fuller citrus supporting.

Good burst of flavour on the back palate, length and a little texture showing what may come. 92

Tasted on: Saturday 2nd August, a Root Day 
Source: Sample
Price: $23 (cheaper via winery website)
