Charlotte Dalton Love You Love Me Semillon 2015

CharlotteDaltonCharlotte Hardy is originally from New Zealand, has made wine around the world including in the USA, France, Australia, and now calls Basket Range in Adelaide Hills home. Amongst the rolling hills and dales, and against a backdrop as a consultant winemaker, Hardy has now released her eponymous range of wines (Dalton is her middle name). The general gist of the wines is to get a feel for the place they are grown through minimal fiddling with grapes; gentle handling from vine to bottle, without a style agenda, per se. Simple. The wines (a shiraz from Adelaide Hills accompanies this wine) are an impressive debut.

A wine that’s hard to stop drinking. Beautiful scents of apple, hay, quince, light ginger spice and lemon curd. In the palate, soft in texture, gentle in fruit flavour, but brisk and crisp as it rides on a mellifluous flow of succulent, pristine grapefruity acidity. It’s not a tight and trim semillon of Hunter ilk, instead parlaying a mellow saturation of sweet-sour citrus, faint herbal detail and mineral water-like minerality through its line. Lovely, pure-feeling wine of high drinkability and refreshment.
