The Oddbins Take

Hunter Valley in New South Wales might not be the first place you'd think of if you wanted to plant a vineyard, even though it is Australia's oldest wine region. The weather's all wrong, the summer sky is frequently covered by cloud and it gets most of its yearly rainfall in three months of unrelieved sogginess. But there's no truth, however, in the rumour that it's been twinned with St. Helens.


First Creek Semillon is a wonderful expression of a classic Hunter Valley grape, light and imbued with citrus and orange blossom, but developing weight and softness over five years bottle ageing. But let's not wait, eh, it's fairing up a bit, we should enjoy it while we can!
