Wine Of The Week

Cockfighter’s Ghost Reserve Semillon, Hunter Valley 2014 $28

The colour is very light, bright yellow and it smells deliciously lemony, waxy, ‘Sunlight soap’ scented: a classic Hunter. In the mouth it’s lemony, intense and soft, with an uncanny balance between delicacy and flavour generosity, softness and crispness. Beautifully designed for early drinking, but will also age well. (11.9 per cent alcohol.) Score 95 ★★★★★ – view on

Ageing? Now to 14 years.

Food idea: Oysters with lemon-juice.
