Hunter Valley Semillon 2022

Australia, Pokolbin
Download info sheet


Vibrant in colour, with lots of luminous green tints. Lovely floral and lemongrass aromas. Mouth filling flavours of green apple and lemon pith balancing the zesty acid backbone. The flavours linger on for quite some time, similar to the 2021, a classic Hunter Valley Semillon to enjoy now or age gracefully. See attachment below.

Vineyard: various

A season with many similarities to 2021 but overall of higher quality. La Nina once again made for a cool, wet season albeit tempered by consistent breezes, which kept the canopy dry and disease at bay. Pokolbin had reached its annual rainfall by the end of November, with it being the wettest November on record. We ended up receiving 956mm for 2021. One of the latest harvests in the Hunter in many years, with the last Semillon not being picked until the 14th of February. Picking was conducted under cool, cloudy skies.

Yield: 12 hl/ha
