McGuigan Bin 9000 Semillon - NSW Hunter Valley

NEIL'S SEMILLON BEST OF WORLD'S BEST

David Ellis

IT doesn't take much to have us singing the praises of Neil McGuigan for what he gets up to at McGuigan Wines in the Hunter Valley, and none more so than after we get down and cosy with one of his Semillons.

For if the Hunter is acknowledged as the world's premier region for the best of Semillons, and the McGuigan Bin Series Semillons renowned globally as the company's most-awarded wine, it must mean Neil is justified in taking a bow for the international recognition these of his are accorded.

And if you've a very special event coming up and are thinking seafood at the heart of it, an ideal wine to match would be the 2013 vintage of the McGuigan Bin 9000 Semillon. For here's a wine from a season that while it saw many a challenge thrown up at the team – from dry and cool, to heatwaves and rain – is fresh and light in its younger years, but then goes on to develop into a classic rich honey and toasty Hunter style Semillon with nice long cellaring potential.

At $30 make it a feature alongside fresh prawn cocktails to kick off special events, and go on to share it with main course platters of grilled seafoods.
