Mount Horrocks Watervale Semillon 2001

I don't drink a lot of semillon. This is not due to any particular grievance, other than perhaps there are only so many wines I can covet. Aged semillons can be particularly stunning. And this semillon, from the riesling stronghold that is Watervale in the Clare Valley, is a good one. Attractive secondary aromas and flavours of toast and citrus make for really quite pleasant drinking. 86 points
