Sémillons from Australia’s Hunter Valley are
legendary for their ageworthiness; Brokenwood’s
matures for four years before release
What You Need To Know
Sémillon is best known as the
signature grape of sweet, luscious Sauternes, the Bordeaux
region that produces many of the world’s greatest dessert wines.
Dry Sémillon, on the other hand, is the famous and practically
unique specialty of Australia’s Hunter Valley—little of which
makes it to the US. High in acidity and low in alcohol, it takes
years for the wines to develop their complex aromas of honey
and toast. This bottling from Brokenwood, one of Hunter
Valley’s most respected wineries, is made in a fresh, racy style
that emphasizes the wine’s citrusy side. Grapes for it come
from a single vineyard in the Pokobin area. Drinkable now, it will
improve with a few more years of age.
