– PERFECT FOR THE BEACH!
– PERFECT FOR THE BEACH!
"Last November, we sold 50 cases of this incredible white wine from Hunter Valley. We’ve just secured some of the last cases of the 2015 Silkman Hunter Valley Semillon, rated 96 points by James Halliday Wine Companion. We hear a lot about Hunter Valley Semillon, but we rarely get to see it in the USA… (For those who haven’t heard of it, Hunter Valley is Australia’s oldest wine region, producing since the 1830s). This Semillon, from the up-and-coming boutique winery Silkman Wines, is dry, crisp, fresh and pure and is very light in alcohol. Hunter Valley Semillons drink well young, but cellar for 10+ years as well. Don’t be shy, show off your wine knowledge with this beautiful white wine, especially since you can’t drink Chardonnay every day! Perfect for the mini-heat wave we are having now in Los Angeles, so don’t miss out on the last of the delicious white while the weather is cooking!" – Glen Knight, The Wine House (7/11/17)

ABOUT HUNTER VALLEY SEMILLON
The Hunter Valley is recognized as the world’s leader in dry white wines made from Semillon. So strong is Semillon’s connection with the terroir of the Hunter Valley that the style cannot been replicated anywhere else in the world. Hunter Valley Semillon is widely regarded as Australia’s unique white wine – a style unlike all others, based on unique climatic conditions, Australian ingenuity and more than 180 years of practice.
Semillon is at its delicate best when picked early to make a wine of low alcohol. When young, it is deliciously crisp with abundant citrus aromas. With age Hunter Valley Semillon develops unique complex toast, vanilla and honey flavors, giving it depth and richness. This remarkable wine can mature and blossom for two decades and beyond and many people believe the wines are at their best around 8-10 years after vintage.
