Wine of the Week AU

Tyrrell’s Belford Single Vineyard Semillon 2013, Hunter Valley, AUD $35

This is a great middle-aged semillon, a fact which is borne out by its seven gold medals and a trophy. The light yellow colour is young for its age, the bouquet is lightly toasty and straw-like, the palate deliciously fruit-sweet and lemon-juicy, building great complexity. The balance is immaculate, the finish super-long. (screwcap)
