Hunter Valley, Australia
First Creek Semillon is a beautiful white wine gem from Down Under, made by First Creek Wines. First Creek Wines is a family owned and operated winery located in the Hunter Valley, New South Wales. The talented family of Hunter Valley wine makers is comprised of Liz, Shaun and Greg Silkman who, since May 2015 alone, have amassed 22 Trophies and 31 Golds across major Australian wine shows for the First Creek label.
It would be difficult to find a wine expert that wouldn't agree the Hunter Valley is one of the world's best Semillon regions. The climate and grape variety combine to produce a wine that is delicately flavored, bright and crisp in its youth but with careful cellaring, develops into a richly layered and complex wine. Equally at home simply sipping with friends or perfectly matched to Australia's finest, fresh seafood, you're sure to enjoy one of the Hunter Valley's finest.
The fruit was crushed and pressed in the cool of the night to retain natural acidity and fresh aromatics. Fermented with a neutral yeast and bottled in early April to retain bright acidity and freshness. An excellent current vintage Semillon while still rewarding those who cellar.
Enjoy First Creek Semillon with seafood, roast chicken, grilled vegetables and soft cheeses.
