Description

Predominantly lemons and grapefruit characters with great minerality and acid that is not overpowering as can sometimes be the case. If cellared it is guaranteed to take on the beautiful smooth honey characteristics that Hunter Semillon is famous for. Highly rated with a number of awards.

Nose

Mouth

Zesty fruit flavours, great minerality, balanced acidity & lengthy palate.

Winemaking Notes

From 77 year old vines in the Broke sub-region, this is a great example of the style of white Hunter does best.

Everything Gartelmann does is outstanding. This is one of the best Semillon's we have tasted at any price. Excellent value.

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.
