Zesty lemon and lime aromas
The appeal of Montvalley’s dry white Semillon is due to its zesty, bright and positive lemon/lime aromas and flavours, with hints of honey and mineral, as well as its delicate acidity to finish.
James Halliday rates Montvalley’s 2003 Semillon a 94 out of 100 in the 2008 Wine Companion. In fact the 03 through to the 06 Semillon vintages all received an above 90 rating and the vineyard four out of five stars in 2008.
Montvalley’s Semillon has also received several awards at the Hunter Valley Boutique Wine Show with a bronze medal in 2003 and a gold medal in 2004.
The greatness of Hunter Semillon comes from its unique capacity to age. Hunter Semillon retains its zesty youthful fruit for many years, maturing with biscuity, malty, honey and toast richness which can be enjoyed up to 10 years plus. It is the perfect accompaniment to seafood.
