Pad Thai with Prawns: First Creek Winemaker’s Reserve Semillon 2013v

FIRST 21213

Very pale lemon with a green hue, this Semillion has an intriguing nose of lemongrass, straw, bay leaf, florals and peppery spice. Fresh clean and long, the palate has lovely layers of lemon, grapefruit, lanolin, talc and sunlight soap bound by mouth-watering acidity.

A classy and well made wine with immediate appeal yet the backbone required for the long-haul.
