Elizabeth Hunter Valley Sémillon 1993

I was ready to pour it down the drain and.... JJJJJJJJJJJJJ!!!!!!!!!!!! That Hunter semillon had done it again.
Late released in 1998, 10% in alcohol, this wine is in such balance. Showing honeyed character, lime jelly, angled onion(or lemon grass if you prefer..i just picked some angled onion weeds in the backyard for my salad😬),marzipan, dried apricot, gingerbread, hay, lanolin and such a freshness that drives me nut. Have I been lucky? I start to think perhaps not.

@Scott Rowe i saw the 92 Elizabeth u had, it must have been as marvellous as what I experienced. Though I was puzzled to see how different the 2 labels looked. The one I had was late released in 98, that must have been why I guess. Still your label looked so much better mate, so vintage😁😁.


Bin 8055 Hunter River Sémillon 1992

It starts sweet like almonds, marzipan or even lemon or passionfruit meringue, but then the freshness makes it close extremely dry like a dry sherry. Hunter semillon in that magic spot, even though there isn't too much complexity i must admit there is somehow a kind of balance.
Mind this is the third bottle of it I open and this has been the best one and still this wine might be past its peak in a week, it's hanging tight on to its decadent beauty.

Treasure Hunter Chloe's Sone Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Someone needs to correct the name on this app and I can’t ever get anyone to respond, but...this Cab was fantastic and got better after being opened for an hour or two. Dark fruit and good tannins. — 14 days ago

Audrey Wilkinson Vineyard

Museum Reserve Sémillon 2006

Missed the boat thinking it was younger than 10 years.
Saline clear in the glass, acid for days, 11% alc helps keep this beauty young.

Rosehill Limited Release Hunter Valley Shiraz 2006

Dense ripe plum and dried plum notes with an overly healthy dose of oak. Medium to full bodied palate. Not your normal Hunter Valley Shiraz - more like a South Australian Shiraz as I’ve mentioned in a previous note. Still retains the Hunter Valley earthiness but not as medium bodied sweaty saddle that Hunter Valley Shiraz should be and was traditionally. Great that Hunter Valley producers have returned to the old medium bodied savoury styles which shone in 2014 and 2017. — a month ago

Hare Hunter Pinot Noir Single Vineyard Eden Valley Barossa 2018

Big bruising style of pinot. Dark cherry, plum, and earthy notes on the nose. Palate is med/full bodied with power and weight. A cab shiraz in pinot clothing. Very good though. — 18 days ago
