Chalkboard Hunter Valley Semillon

For at least a decade, the coveted Trophy for the Best Current Vintage Semillon in the Hunter Valley Wine Show has been hotly contested by the more expensive semillons of the region. Quite a scandal was unleashed in the Hunter last week when both this trophy and the trophy for Best Current Vintage Dry White Wine were scooped by a semillon that can be yours for less than $10 at Vintage Cellars. Assembled by the legendary crew at Tyrrell’s exclusively for VCs, this is a crisp and zesty style of pure lime and lemon fruit, with a hint of cut grass. The 2012 vintage has made for a generous semillon of impressive balance and clean fruit focus, ready to unscrew right away.
