Gartelmann, Benjamin Semillon, Hunter Valley 2016
Sandy lemon and lime aromas with rocket/arugula like spice and a delicate light meringue note. Full-ish up front with a thirst invoking saltbush savoury quality before dour lemon and even light grapefruit characters. Relatively broad shouldered, but not fat. The acidity is sharp, but not shrill and the wine leaves plenty of fruit flavour on the palate. 10 years plus for cellaring potential.
