I know that this isn't a fancy super expensive wine, but if you are patient to cellar it it will open a door of perception, an insight on the Hunter Valley semillon, it could indeed be a textbook as an aged sample and descriptor of the category.
Lime jelly, macadamia, lanolin, lemongrass, mineral and the more you swirl the more it gives you all in perfect balance. An outstanding performer that very rarely disappoints.
Long and generous.

Under corked. Aged cellar release I supposed in 2006.
Different look, bright golden. Intense nose. Tropical fruits, floral, cashew, ginger, lemongrass, toasty, honey, almonds. Very very complex😱😱. Burgundy like mouth, all driven by the beautiful hunter Semillon minerality, more Puligny like or Chablis?
Extremely queffable too. To be clear... I really like it😂😂

"Early release" on the label.
If you put this wine with lots of 1er cru White Burgundy blinded I dare anyone but someone from this side of the world could hardly tell the difference.
Ok, different minerality, but the texture....the complexity. I will open soon an aged release of the same vintage. It will be hard to beat this bottle. Perfect timing with the bottle best moment tonight😊
