How does this sound… a crisp glass of Hunter Valley Semillon and a bowl full of Prosciutto and Scallop Fettuccine? Yes please!
And one of the best things I love about the recipes that come with the Good Pair Days wines is that they’re simple and easy to make. They don’t require hundreds of ingredients and special equipment. They’re simple and bloody tasty.
Before I get stuck into this wine, I just want to say thank you to the GPD team for this sample bottle.
This Saddler’s Creek ‘Alluvia’ 2013 Semillon is ready to drink now or can be cellared up to 7 years. I love aged Semillon, but I’m also impatient.
In the glass it’s a rather bright yellow with a rich nose of spiced fruits, camomile, dehydrated pineapple and refreshing citrus zest. In the mouth there’s a bit of flint, lime and apricots. It has a nice refreshing acidity across the palate that would be perfect with the fettuccine.
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
