'Clarence' Sticky Semillon 2010

 

Pale to medium straw colored, the 2010 ‘Clarence’ Sticky Semillon offers moderate to pronounced aromas of lemon marmalade, clover honey and dried apricots with hints of fresh ginger and jasmine. Very sweet and silky on the intensely fruited, full bodied palate, it has a good line of crisp acid and layers of stone and citrus fruit flavors going long into the finish. Delicious now, it has some capacity to develop and should keep to 2017.
