Gartelmann Wines [Hunter Valley NSW], "Benjamin" Semillon 2016

This flagship multi-medalled "Benjamin" Gartelmann Semillon, grown from old vines reflects the typical steeliness of the variety & region albeit mantled by fulsome fragrance & aromas reminescent of lime / orange blossoms with a hint of marzipan.
The palate displays the crisp straw undertones typical of the variety and an assertive acid backbone. It promises some longevity
The lingering lively richness of primary fruit and 11.8% Alc, entice to yet another glass.
This very enjoyable tightly wound fruit bomb can be savoured now but will also reward some cellaring
Price: $25
