Alkoomi Wandoo Semillon 2013, Frankland River, AUD $35
Summer and semillon are perfect partners, and this excellent example from Alkoomi delivers freshness and palate weight. Sourced from a single block of Frankland River semillon planted thirty years ago, it is a wine with heart and soul. Lemon curd and snappy apple flavours sit in perfect harmony with the acidity. There is a hint of beeswax and a little poached quince.
At five years of age, it is drinking beautifully now though it will continue to evolve with time in bottle. It shows its best alongside food. (Screwcap)
