The Shortlist Semillon
Platinum - Best in Show: Best White Single-Varietal over £15
A lovely, shimmering clarity, with gorgeous layers of ripe lemon peel, baked lime and warm toast aromas laced with a subtle, smoky gunflint note. Wonderfully complex on the palate, with juicy, ripe, mouthwatering citrus underpinned by a gorgeous, mineral thread and a sublime, salty, saline finish.
