Huntington Estate’s 2016 semillon is from 50 year old vines in Mudgee, and opens to fresh cut grass and waxy apple skin aromas. The palate is light to medium bodied, the acidity fresh and the length very good. In all, this is very good semillon release that can be approached now or cellared for improvement over the next decade. Rating: Very Good. Abv: 11.5%. Price: $30. Source: Sample.
