2010 Brokenwood Sémillon Hunter Valley New South Wales
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Pale yellow. High-pitched, mineral-driven aromas of lemon zest, talc and spearmint. Taut and juicy, showing citrus fruits, a hint of green apple and strong minerality. Picks up deeper melon and pear character with air and finishes dry and persistent. I like this wine's linear character.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Semillon gives intense notes of freshly squeezed lime, lemon meringue and wet pebbles. Dry and light-bodied, it has a nice nervy tautness and very crisp acid that lingers long into the finish. Delicious now, it should cellar well to 2016+.
Brokenwood's entry-level Semillon is always a reliable introduction to the Hunter Valley style. Crisp, zingy citrus fruit and light body make it a fine accompaniment to raw oysters or other shellfish when young.
Light, tart and appealing for its lively, leesy pear and lime flavors, lingering nicely. Drink now through 2015. 500 cases imported." (Web-2010)
