Wine Of The Week

Briar Ridge Dairy Hill Semillon, Hunter Valley 2015 $35

This is a textbook young semillon, with a pale colour and a pristine lemon and straw bouquet. The flavours are not too grassy but more lemon and lime, the finish bell-clear and lingering. With springwater-like mouth-feel, it has loads of energy and palate length. (11 per cent alcohol; screw cap) Score: 96 ★★★★★ – view on huonhooke.com
