The Hunter Valley is a great place to start when talking about Semillon. The region has embraced the variety, producing mostly dry styles, famous for their capacity to age well, gaining in richness and complexity. Barossa Semillons are generally richer and fuller, while Western Australian Semillons are typically lean and grassy. When selecting a youthful Semillon, look for lime, lemon, green apple, talc and zesty acid characteristics. More mature examples will display honey, toast, hazelnut and almond flavours.
