2009 Alexander Munro Semillon

“I don’t care what anyone says, the best semillon in the Hunter always comes from sandy soils, giving more finesse, better acid structure and longevity” says Meerea Park winemaker Rhys Eather, comparing his Alexander Munro (sandy soils) with his Terracotta (clay). Munro is sourced from the 1969 planted Braemore vineyard, referred to by Eather as Burgundian in the way Andrew Thomas, Pepper Tree and Meerea Park all source from the same vineyard. Harvested in a single pick, this is a semillon of pristine focus, tension, energy and texture, with a core of primary citrus energy and epic acid line. Profound mineral texture is classic Braemore, beautifully refined, eminently persistent and backward at five years of age. $30 at Banks (2008). 2009 coming late. Drink: 2019-2029. 96 points
