Yes, it’s a very enjoyable Hunter Semillon with all the traditional characteristics, plus softening roundness that makes it an easy to enjoy white, with or without food. That’s the point of difference; drink with or without food. I prefer it with food. Traditional characters are the hints of lanolin, the clear lemon and limes, the acidity and modest alcohol (11.8%). It may not be full-on Vat 1 style; but neither is the price. It’s still quality Hunter with a touch of sweet. - Michael L
