What makes a classic Hunter semillon?
From an international perspective, Australia's two most classic and distinctive wines are the fortified wines of the Rutherglen region and Hunter Valley Semillon. In its youth, Hunter Semillon displays citrus, grass and minerality. With age, honey and toast characters come to the fore. The most classic Hunter Semillons are typically low in alcohol, namely 9-12%. There is no use of oak. Fermentation is in tank and bottling is early. These are wines where the vineyard, not the winemakers, do most of the talking!
