Gartelmann Benjamin Semillon 2017


A summer time pleaser. Be my guest to indulge - delicious Semillon sourced off 77 year-old dry grown vines.

Chill hard and the welcome mat is rolled out with ease. So refreshing, there's a tension coiled up in the mouth but delivery is plentiful. Aromas of lemongrass, citrus flower and lemon zest with a tangy citrus drive through the mouth. There's lashings of textural appeal which carry what could be seen as a creaminess to long and seemingly never-ending finish.

I'm loving the freshness but it's certainly staring some aging down if that's what you're after.

Drink now to a decade.
