De Iuliis Sunshine Vineyard Hunter Valley Semillon

Early signs are that 2013 is a strong season for Hunter semillon. One of the first in bottle, De Iuliis sings with lime blossom and pink grapefruit fragrance. The palate is taut and honed, with a linear acid spine, slatey texture and tightly coiled structure. A semillon of persistence and potential. $23 at ViNE.
