The 2004 version of this wine, made from Ken Braye’s Braemore vineyard grapes, won a gold medal in the 100 per cent Hunter Valley any vintage semillon dry white class at the recent Hunter Valley Wine Show. The 2002 is pale straw in the glass and has green apple and lanolin scents. Crisp lemon flavour shows on the front of the palate and sherbert and lime zest characters chime in on the middle palate. Fresh steely acid refreshes at the finish. It’s a lighter, delicate style of white that would be best with potato and leek soup, chicken and mushroom vol-ua-vent or warm broccoli and tuna salad. Aging: 5 years. 4 glass rating.
