Moss Wood 2020 Semillon – Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
My goodness, this is a different expression of Semillon. I’d never pick it blind as one, which is no bad thing, and anyway, it could well say more about me than the wine.
Rich and ripe, apple and pear, maybe some lemongrass, but nothing much in the way of greenery aside that. It’s fleshy and full-flavoured, honey and green pear, a little lime, a vanilla perfume wafting about, some warmth but also has grip, finishes with pear skin and raw almond. Good wine though. Full and textural, with a distinct personality.
