Margan White Label Semillon 2016

It was a wet December/January in the Hunner, consequently the grapes were left on the vine through February to dry and restore balance. 

Citrus, hints of kumquat- bordering on what be considered little botrytis aroma. Stonefruit, rounds out the ripeness on show. Shows a bit of minerality on first taste - immediately on taking into the mouth.

There's a real freshness about this wine: manages to balance citrus and stone fruit, throw in a little middle palate texture along with a touch of acid. This is no electrifying Semillon of the type often seen in youth, just showing inherent balance and approachability. 

Will it offer the longevity many seek in HV Sem? Time will tell. 92.
