As the taster below said in 2013, this is still a baby. There is still so much acid here that it has the legs to go a lot further. I'd even try 2018 or 2020. I think the screw cap is definitely slowing it down.
His flavour notes below are on point, and perhaps I consumed it when it was too cold. More of the brioche, melon, honey and lovely fruit comes through when the bottle is a little warmer and has breathed for an hour or so.
Overall a great quality wine. I paid $72 AUD for it, which is a bit steep in my opinion. I would only pay maybe $50-$60 AUD for this world class Hunter Valley Semillon.
Green to straw- yellow in the glass. Aromas of fresh Citrus, Lime with some pineapple. Hints of Honey with Floral notes. Traces of Sulfur. Taste of a lot of fresh Fruits, like Lemon, Lime, some Grapefruit and Honeydew Melon. Beautiful acidity. Finishes medium-long with Toasty and Honey characters. A typical and great Hunter Valley Semillon. Still very fresh and young! The screwcap closure is definitely slowing the aging process. This wine still has many years down the road.
