Drink the Brokenwood Semillon young for its zesty lime and lemon flavours or age it for 4-6 years to experience the succulent honeyed flavours of aged Semillon.
So racy and fine, tinny almost but not without
charm, just slotted into a precise, crisp frame
and given a shed load of energy from nervous
acidity and very pure, fine citrus fruit character.
Thread through the eye of a needle and utterly
delicious in its own, frisky, fine boned way.
So tense, so much vitality, so good.

Anything Beechworth pinot gris can do, Hunter Valley semillon can do better. This shows the signs of a cool vintage - rarely a bad thing when it comes to Hunter semillon. Cut grass/hay aromatics are the telltale sign, though they do not get the chance to dominate - mostly because this wine is so overwhelmingly citrus-driven. A textbook example of 'line and length' if ever there was one. Ready to sup this summer though of course, it will age.

A mesmerising paradox: Moreish from day one and it can live for thirty years, as a recent vertical proved! The 2011 is clean and even, with precise lemon juice and cut grass lingering fine and long; a delicate flick of ripeness provides approachability on the finish. A confident vintage for this label.

From Brokenwood's home territory in the Hunter, which had a cracker of a vintage this year, comes this drink-now style of semillon that shows a richer and fuller presence, though not an ounce of flab, so it's still wonderfully floral and fresh to start, showing expressive fruit and a grounded, minerally under-layer. For those keen on an aged style, the 2006 ILR Reserve semillon shows great energy with years ahead of it.

...vivid mid-palate, with citrus to the fore, and background touches of stone fruits, the zesty acidity cleanses the finish and guarantees a long life.
