Tyrrell’s Belford Vineyard Semillon 2017

April’s Wine of the Month: A top value pick from my Hunter trip…

Tyrrell’s Belford Semillon 2017: 5 stars / 94 pts 

$55 AUD – Great Value! 

The 2017 Belford Semillon offers a perfumed nose brimming with floral and lemon character. Honeyed notes emerge alongside a more citrusy profile, hinting at the density of flavour to come. The palate is rich and textural, boasting a pronounced waxiness with a dusty oat texture that adds intrigue. The remarkably low pH of 3.03 lends a Riesling-like vibrancy. Sandy soils leave their mark on this wine. The naturally concentrated fruit speaks volumes about the quality of the grapes and the vineyard, suggesting it will continue to age gracefully for another decade or so.
