The Elizabeth Semillon is released at 5 years of age to showcase the complexities that come to Hunter Valley Semillon with bottle age.
Brilliant pale straw colour with glimmering green toned edges and a watery hue. Attractive aromatics of pear, lime and green apple infused with oily toast like notes, bees wax, lemon butter and spice drift out of the glass. Lively lime and green apple fruits are underscored by zesty mineral infused acidity with tertiary elements of toast, subtle bees wax, lemon butter and spice lining the back half. Showing good tension it finishes dry, crisp and long.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Alc. 11%

Other Reviews…..
An aged release. All the grapes are estate grown, far distant from Elizabeth's heyday. Ah, what a drop-dead beauty, with the poise of a ballerina, feet barely touching the ground, and marking the end of act one. The first stage of honey and toast just commenced, with four to five stages still to follow. Drink by 2037.
