Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

As always, a beautiful color with luminous greens. Distinctive Hunter lemongrass/straw aromas as a young wine. Sweet fruit flavors initially on the palate indicating perfect ripeness at harvest and in fact a bit riper than usual. Excellent acid structure, long flavors of lime and apple blossom. Perfect in its youth and a wine that will bottle age gracefully.

Critical Acclaim

"Pale quartz-green; right in the mainstream of Hunter Valley semillon, still delicate on the bouquet, but with a palate full of nervous energy (nervosity in French) ad tingling citrus/lemongrass flavours running through to a very long finish. "
94 Points

"Pale yellow. High-pitched, mineral-driven aromas of lemon zest, talc and spearmint. Taut and juicy, showing citrus fruits, a hint of green apple and strong minerality. Picks up deeper melon and pear character with air and finishes dry and persistent. I like this wine's linear character. "
90 Points

"Deceptively simple in its clean, spicy line of flavor, this young semillon buzzes with beeswax, orange, lemon, grapefruit and litchi. It's bright, airy and refined, a white that will respond generously to bottle age."

Technically this wine is very good, but semillon is a very light bodied soft wine that is just not my general taste. Would use it however if I was pairing to a light soup or a light fish course.

Learn About Hunter Valley

Like the state it's in, New South Wales, Hunter Valley is hot and the traditional grapes are Shiraz & Semillon. But Chardonnay has become a popular and very produced variety. The hot weather gets the grapes super ripe, which in turn makes most of the wines big and rich.

Learn About Semillon

Semillon (sem-eel-YHON) Moldy-Goldie An essential white grape of Bordeaux, Semillon is a golden-berried goddess, producing some of the longest-lasting white wines ever made. It's the pride and joy of areas like Sauternes and Barsac for its ability to incur botrytis, or noble rot. The grape takes well to the fungus and in turn produces rich, golden,...
