5 Stars/95 Points – James Halliday

Hamelin Bay 2017 Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

Employs the standard Hamelin Bay unoaked protocol in the winery, the 51/49 blend delivering a wine with considerable drive and intensity with Semillon in the driver’s seat. Each retaste simply adds to the intensity of the grassy/citrusy/gooseberry mix. The magic comes straight from the vineyard and specific yeast selection.
