Huntington Estate Special Reserve Semillon 2016

It's labelled a Special Reserve and is produced from free run juice only. Sees a bit of extended bottle time too, all that said it’s a fairly approachable price given what some ‘standard’ Semillon go for.

A: Citrus and grassy hints in the main, there’s a suggestion of musky lychee notes in the frame too. It’s certainly relaxed in its frame, not the most expressive initially.

P: It’s got a bit of width and weight to it. The acid isn’t shy and carries a fine vein of citrus to boot. There’s good texture from a bit of extended time on lees, gives it gravitas. It’s not your “battery acid in youth” Semillon, possessing a good balance and moreish aspect to it. Good wine, good length, giving and with a suggestion of a phenolic edge. 91
