Glenguin Individual Vineyard 1998 Semillon Hunter Valley
Fabulous. A wine that initially retailed for around $18 (less by the case), the last bottle I had was around eight or nine years ago and was still lean and mean. I opened this bottle last night, slightly chilled, and it showed some of the creamy, toasty personality of aged Hunter Semillon. Since we couldn’t finish the bottle, I vacuvinned the wine overnight, now it is just starting to show some of those smoky, minerally notes of old Hunter. Not a big, weighty wine, firm acid on the finish, but that peacock tail, breadth of flavour, on the palate just magic. Lovely.
