Pepper Tree Trevena Semillon 2021


After a tough 2020, the Hunter enjoyed better conditions in ’21, and some very fine wines are on offer, not least some cracking Semillons. This Limited Release comes from 100 year old vines. It is the palest yellow in hue. We have aromas of citrus, ginger, lemongrass and river stone. There is bright acidity, focus and drive with immaculate balance. This is a very fine young Semillon, but its best is all ahead of it – a wine of elegance and finesse. Sure, enjoy it now, but anyone who can exhibit some patience over the next eight to twelve years will be very happy. And the score will rise commensurately.
