De Iuliis 2012 Semillon
Young Hunter Valley semillon remains one of Australia's most under-appreciated wine styles, which is downright hard to fathom when there are wines like this available for under $20. Mike de Iuliis is one of the most talented young winemakers around and he's done a great job with this fresh and vibrant young wine which is appealing lean; like a slinky catwalk model with just enough meat on her bones. There are fresh and lime and grapefruit aromas on the nose, followed up by intense zingy citrus on the palate and crunchy acidity. A crisp youngster that will be perfect for summer enjoyment - and it's a bargain to boot. $18. www.dewine.com.au.
