SKU: N/A Category: Product ID: 1712


This variety is best known as the Hunter Valley icon as it grows extremely well in the soils and weather conditions of the Hunter.  It is essentially a dry wine with lovely fresh clear, crisp varietal characteristics. As a young wine it is high in acid and presents in a crisp light refreshing style.  As it ages it changes to a smoother more buttery wine which has the potential to develop its fruit characteristics over a 7-10 year period under correct cellaring. 


Catherine Vale Semillon is made in traditional Hunter style with the grapes being hand  picked earlier rather than later and then cool fermented in stainless steel tanks. 


Catherine Vale Semillons exhibit the classic citrus flavours of the variety with lemon or lime predominance and are lovely crisp and clear light  white  wines.  The style goes well with seafood .  Semillon is also a good wine to begin a meal with  . Why not try some today!
