2022 Harkham Aziza's Semillon13339
WINEMAKER: Richie Harkham
REGION: Hunter Valley, NSW
Fermented with indigenous yeasts this hand harvested Hunter Semillon is made without the use of additions or added preservatives. It has been bottled unfiltered We haven't had an Aziza's Semillon for a few years, the last was the 2019 vintage. It is a wine I miss for it's zesty lemon freshness, nowhere does zesty lemon quite like Hunter Semillon. It's also saline and briny, like a young Jura Savagnin, clear and pure. There is this year a real vibrancy and an attractive Jalapeno like lift to the finish, it's a lovely drinking wine !
Farmed sustainably without the use of fungicides and pesticides, the fruit is handpicked to ensure the highest quality. All work within the winery is undertaken with no chemical additions, flavour adjustments, filtration or fining. The wines are bottled with no added sulphites, in some cases with just a small sulphur addition. Through this minimalist approach to winemaking, Richie helps create wines that are pure, honest and true representations of nature.
