Huntington Estate [Mudgee NSW], Special Reserve Semillon 2017

This is only the third release of this superb Semillon in the four wine-producing decades of Huntington Estate.
It is well deserving of the Special Reserve label, as it embodies all the attributes of class and pedigree.
It currently displays all the regional varietal characteristics of pineapple / straw and honey on toast.
The clean zingy acid backbone supports & enhances the generous primary fruit aromas and flavours even at this stage of youthfulness.
This is a seamless, ideally balanced Semillon of substance and promise which will continue to evolve and gratify for quite a few years.
It's one of the most approachable young Semillons that I have enjoyed for a while.
