Gundog Estate Off-Dry Semillon 2021


This is exactly the sort of wine which so many people insist that they do not like, but then happily drink as much of it as they can get their hands on. It is a wine which works very well via cellar door sales as winelovers will insist that they don’t do sweet, but once they’ve had the chance to taste it, opinions change. It is also an absolutely perfect style for a refreshing drink over summer. Fresh, that hint of sweetness and low alcohol (9.1%), even by Hunter Semillon standards, makes it the perfect summer afternoon wine. 

Spices, lifted aromatics, citrus, orange rind. There is a gentle sweetness, cleansing more than sweet. Bright and fresh, there is moderate length and it does linger pleasantly. Youthful, but it is a drink now style, and an impeccably made example.
