Meerea Park Alexander Munro Semillon 2009

At five years of age, this 2009 release of Meerea Park's Alexander Munro Semillon is starting to take on the colour of its advancing year, a glorious honeyed gold with pale green hints. That this wine can be bought, ex-winery and under screwcap for $36 is a boon for the consumer. That it will cellar well for another 10+ years makes it all the more a compelling purchase decision.

Straw, wool, lanolin offer themselves up, supported with a honeyed edge. It's providing glimpses of where it's heading, yet retains primacy of youth and a gorgeous line of acidity that will provide the backbone for further ageing.

Curd notes are showing, further it's a little plumper around the midriff, but as noted maintains freshness and energy. Excellent finish, a little chalky dryness. One to stand up for and salute. 95
