Elderton Golden Semillon 375ml 2016
Made by cutting the cordon and thus concentrating the sugars in the bunches sans botrytis influence, the wine is a brilliant hue of yellow tinged with iridescent green at the edges. Mango, papaya, quince marmalade and a tang of ginger spice that splays long across the mouth, are bound to an energetic skein of zesty acidity that tows the wine long.
