The Bunkhouse Hunter Valley Sémillon 2017

Quite an interesting wine.. classic to Hunter Valley for sure. It has this musky, wool like aroma laced with fresh lemon zest, key lime juice, chamomile, dusty topsoil, and white pepper. The pallet is full of bright zippy acidity, which is MUCH more palatable at a slightly warmer temp, where all the flavors and aromas start to reveal themselves - under ripe white pear, flint, lemon pith, creme, and a bright finish. Interesting to try one a week ago from Barossa Valley, and then one from its iconic home in Hunter Valley to compare the differences. — 4 years ago

Check out their Shiraz, too, particularly Graveyard.

Definitely will look into getting some! Thanks for the recommendation. I'm in love with Austrailian wine lately.


Indigo Vineyard Shiraz 2012

Pretty aromatics with black and red berries. Same to taste with coffee and raw meat. Good acidity too but it all ends a bit abruptly. — 4 years ago


Hunter Valley Sémillon 2019

Probably drinking this too young but it has the body and zip and gravel moves that make me a Sémillon lover — 7 months ago

McLaren Vale Padthaway Shiraz 1999


Classic jammy fruit up front, with spice at the back that had held up well over time. Definite hints of tobacco and eucalyptus. Still has decent life left. — 5 years ago

William Shiraz 2011

Dense Crimson in colour. The nose and palate on this full bodied red are more reminiscent of a South Australian Red than the medium bodied savoury style typical of the Hunter Valley. Just the faintest hint of HV sweat and earth. This showed rich ripe black currant with smooth tannins. It’s a pity there was a time when HV wines tried to mimic the SA styles which were more popular. This is an example of that. Quite a good wine but not true to its origins. Thankfully the main HV wineries have returned to their original style - think Mount Pleasant Maurice O’Shea, Brokenwood Graveyard and Tyrells Individual Paddocks. — a year ago

Brycefield/Belford Vineyards Sémillon 2007

Very acidic. Much better with food. Nose had diesel or kerosene overpowering everything else. Palate was a pleasant surprise. — 4 years ago
