Hands up if you’re a Semillon lover?
I love versatile grapes which can produce a range of sweet, dry, still and sparkling wines and that’s exactly what the golden-skinned Semillon grape can do.
A big thank you to Moss Wood for this sample bottle of their newly released 2020 Semillon. Which received a 96 point rating from Halliday by the way.
This is a Sem that’s drinking beautifully right now however I have no doubt it’ll be exquisite when aged too.
From it’s brilliant straw-like hue to its mouthwatering notes of fresh melon, crunchy apple, fresh lemonade and interestingly lanolin – it looks and smells like it needs to be in your mouth stat. And it doesn’t disappoint on the palate. Especially once it warms up, so don’t have it too cold. It’s medium bodied with yummy notes of guava, apple and something a little savoury – I just couldn’t put my taste buds on it. Yum.
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
