Brokenwood Hunter Valley Sémillon

BROK025
Hunter Valley Semillon is a unique style of wine; when young it is crisp light and citrus-led, but it develops a toasty, buttery edge with age. Brokenwood are regarded as one of the finest producers of the style.

Brokenwood Wines

Established in 1970, Brokenwood Wines has evolved from a weekend venture for self-professed hobby winemakers into one of Australia’s most reputable wine labels. Brokenwood was founded by a trio of Sydney-based solicitors, Tony Albert, John Beeston and James Halliday, who paid a then record price of $970 per acre for a 10-acre block in the foothills of the Brokenwood Ranges. The original block - original planned as a cricket ground for the local community was planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.

Tasting Notes

Lifted aromas of citrus and lemongrass on the nose with sweet fruit flavours and great lime juice acidity on the palate. This is an outstanding young Hunter Valley Semillon.

Food Matches

Works well with any seafood, especially freshly shucked oysters.
