Semillon: 'Phil Swannell' 2015
Was a difficult year for Hunter Valley wine producers with extreme weather conditions. Some vineyards in the valley ultimately didn’t even produce a Semillon. Defying the odds is the 2015 Phil Swannell Semillon scoring a tremendous 95 points. This wine is a spectacular young Semillon displaying a vibrant lemon-lime characteristic. Ideal as a stand-alone wine in hot weather with a crisp and refreshing finish.
