Brokenwood Semillon

The 2007 Brokenwood Semillon still has a lime green colour. This translates to lime and citrus on the palate. The wine is very clean and frankly delicious. It has great balance between fruit and acidity and after seven years, does not show much development (under screwcap, stored 12 to 14 degrees).

We all wonder why Semillon is not more popular. One reason could be that there is no obvious best food match. However, this one went extremely well with an acidic green salad a la Ottolenghi, involving quite a bit of lemon curd. Perfect and straight forward.

Score: 92/++
