New South Wales Wine

New South Wales is state and wine-producing region within the Federal Commonwealth of Australia, and one of the first to be populated with and planted by European settlers.

Hunter Valley is the best known region in the state, regarded for its prized Semillon that was originally planted in the 1820s by James Busby, who is credited with being the “Father of Australian Wine.”

    Clear but incredibly pale yellow in the glass. Interesting, it almost looks like water. Herbal, vegetative nose reminds me more of a sauvignon blanc. Very refreshing on the palate--initially a melon flavor but then lot's of lemon. Excellent acid gives it the refreshing quality. US$11.69 at Total WIne. Read More
