James Halliday - James Halliday, August 2008
Still pale and bright; small wonder it has such a spectacular show record (9 golds stretching from 2002-07); it has the feminine delicacy of all great Hunter semillons yet has layer-upon-layer of flavour in a seamless mix... Still pale and bright; small wonder it has such a spectacular show record (9 golds stretching from 2002-07); it has the feminine delicacy of all great Hunter semillons yet has layer-upon-layer of flavour in a seamless mix of lemon honey and acidity toasty notes yet to come...

Crisp great concentration with a light bodied palate. Very minerally very long in the finish. Drink now to 2020.

Just starting to gain color as it transitions from straw to gold the classic aromas of creamy lemon lime zest toast nuts and hints of beeswax are moderately intense yet become seamlessly integrated with air. With broad textures on the palate the flavors of lemon and lime are clear and bright offering good length with some roundness on the long supple finish. This is still a baby with plenty of room for this wine to gain weight. Look for another 6-8 years of development easily.
