Andrew Thomas Braemore Semillon 2012

Vintage: 2012

Style: Dry white

Country: Australia

Region: Hunter Valley


Overview Only in the Hunter Valley would you find producers with almost half of their portfolio made up of Semillon. Not only this but such a variance in style. From citrus to straw, aged to fresh. Semillon is one hell of a grape; it’s just a shame only wine wankers appreciate it these days (unless it’s blended with its demonic counterpart, Sauvignon Blanc).


Tasting note: This Semillon sits more in that fresh, simple bracket. It displays a delicately grassy nose with notes of citrus. On the palate lime juice comes powering through with subtle hints of straw and green apple peel.


Final Say: Elegant, simple and supremely enjoyable. $20-$25 a bottle


Score: 17 out of 20
