2019 Huntington Estate Mudgee Semillon Chardonnay

While tasting this wine, I was trying to think of the last time I saw this particular white blend on social media, on a restaurant wine list or in a bottle shop.  I’ve seen ‘field blends’ and plenty of ‘Rhone blends’ about but few bottles of Semillon/Chardonnay.  After tasting it, I began to wonder why there isn’t more of it about, especially considering how delicious this one is.

Things started off very nicely with plenty of stonefruit and citrusy aromas causing some anticipation salivation.  It’s fresh, fruity and full of flavour on the palate, that’s for sure.  Lovely peach and nectarine characters to the fore with a nice lemon/grapefruit-like acidity adding freshness to a very good, persistent and dry finish.  I have to admit, I did ‘taste’ it many times just to make sure.

This is an absolute bargain and, considering Tim and Nicky Stevens won’t be producing any wines from the 2020 vintage due to smoke taint, wines like this one of theirs are going to be in high demand.  I can see the words, ‘sold out’ appearing next to this wine on the website so, get in quick.
