This bottle hails from Australia's Hunter Valley, a region known for producing some really solid Semillons - and this one is no exception. Until recently, this juice was only sold Down Under, but it has finally made its way stateside and we couldn't be happier.

Australian Semillon is definitely trending right now - and this bottle will show you why! The palate is truly unique, it is slick and mouth-coating without being cloying. The nose of honeyed stone fruit (think: peaches and apricots) is matched with a limestone freshness. The aromatics of jasmine, buttercup and daffodils are absolutely intoxicating. Dry but with a whole lot of character!
Honeyed apricots and crushed almonds with white flowers and mineral notes.

Silky and lean, the wine is smooth with a waxy-fruit character. A gentle acidity cleans up the richness of agave and floral flavors.
