Description

The Hunter Valley is one of the world’s best Semillon regions. The climate and grape variety combine to produce a wine that is delicately flavoured, bright and crisp in its youth but with careful cellaring, develops into a richly layered and complex wine. The Hunter Valley is usually grouped in with the rest of Australia as having a Mediterranean climate, however, it’s actually humid subtropical, with distinctive maritime influences from the Pacific Ocean. With its northerly latitude and close oceanic influences, the Hunter Valley is one of Australia’s hottest and wettest wine regions.

First Creek Wines is a family owned and operated winery based in the Hunter Valley, whose emphasis on careful fruit selection and rigorous attention to detail. The fruit for their Regions Semillon was crushed and pressed in the cool of the night to retain natural acidity and fresh aromatics. Fermented with a neutral yeast and bottled in early April to retain bright acidity and freshness. An excellent current vintage Semillon to drink now whilst still having potential for ageing.
