Got a pair. Well made, great mouthfeel and deaf nut Sem.

Bit too petrolly for me but it will keep so hoping it will mellow. Second in the datk for a year. If you like your bit of petrol, you'll love this beast.

Yep, I'm up for some of that, order placed.

Any thoughts on how long this will keep? I'm still drinking my 05 Mount Pleasant Elizabeth.

Reckon in general these hunter valley semillons can be good for 10yrs from vintage, all depends on your preference for flavour profiles
I've still got a few of the MPE 2005 to get through. How are they doing. These just seem to keep going staying fresh as a daisy

I'm down to my last bottle Shezza, I remember opening a bottle a couple of months ago and thinking this is a little 'flat', still nice but the acidity & freshness was fading, then I had another bottle a couple of weeks ago and it was full of beans, lovely wine. Either I was having an off day or the cap wasnt 100% sealed on the tired bottle. Cant say for sure. I think the longer you store wine the greater the risk of variation in quality.

Finished a bottle of the Semillon last night, good nose, bright tasting, a touch thin on the finish but certainly a decent £5 quaffer. Better as it warms in the glass and opens up, no noticeable improvement on second day.
