Henschke Noble Rot Semillon 2015
A super intense wine with beautiful concentration without feeling at all cloying or overdone. Full of lemon butter and lime marmalade alongside fresh lime juice acidity. Excellent. Ian Cook, FWC.
100% Semillon grown on the Henschke Eden Valley vineyard, naturally infected with Botrytis cinerea. 32% was aged on lees for 6 months in seasoned 225L barriques, while the remainder was aged on lees in tank, for complexity without obvious oak character. Pale gold with lime-green hues. Enticing floral aromas of citrus blossom, honeysuckle and lemon curd, with subtle nuances of candied lime and apricot nectar. Concentrated layers of pear, citrus rind, aniseed and honey intertwine with precise acidity, beautifully balanced sweetness and fine texture, for a long and luscious finish. Henschke.
