Stonehurst Cedar Creek Semillon 1998

The Stonehurst Cedar Creek wines have become favourites and we tasted a 1998 Semillon last weekend that was pure Hunter – deliciously coloured and delicious to taste. Award-winning wines include the 2006 Chardonnay Semillon Champagne Style Sparkling White which won a trophy at the 2009 Hunter Valley Boutique Winemakers Show. Shiraz, Chambourcin and Semillon are more drops to try at the pretty sandstone cellar door. Love red? Try the Grower's Reserve Shiraz and the Chambourcin!
The pomegranates in the picture were growing on the Cedar Creek property which have led me on a search for recipes - I have an Armenian one which includes pistachio nuts, rosewater, yoghurt and cream which I can't wait to try. Watch this space ...

PS: Just looking at Not Quite Nigella (created by one of my favourite travelling companions) I see a recipe for pomegranate chicken. See for
