The 2007 semillons from the Hunter Valley were of stellar quality and this is one of the best - fresh, lively and citrusy with delightful balance and structure, finishing dry on the palate. Given time in the bottle it will develop toasty characters. $19.

A recent visit to Cape Mentelle underlined the high quality across the range. This is the style of wine every household needs a case of; it has wonderful balance, and is an atypical Australian red given its softness and elegance. Wonderful drinking. $30.
