Traminer ganze Traube
Amber gold in colour and clearly with prolonged maceration.
Highly aromatic with red pepper, litchi, rose water, cardamon.
Quite a mouthful on the palate, rough around the edges, with quite a tannic grip But not lacking anything, great on the mid palate, singing, juicy acidity, with mandarines, quince and ripe red apples. Plus a mineral, herby, slightly bitter (yet attractive) edge.
This has depth, energy, zing! A true delight & wonderful discovery.

Actually a cleanskin of the Lindemans bin 5687 Traminer Riesling and I am not sure if the Riesling was instead a semillon at that stage.
The wine was absolutely past its peak, but had some freshness and a long after taste.
Bought on auction from James Halliday' cellar collection.
1979 was a great vintage in Hunter Valley
Surely happy I tried, but not the greatest.
After 4 hrs I go back on the remaining half btl of the wine which was left unattended on the kitchen bench with a random cork inserted since its own obviously crumbed at the opening.
Well, don't ask me, but the wine has opened up aromas earlier hidden of white chocolate, macadamia, hay, ginger, apricot jam, a bountiful of flowers, lemon grass, English breakfast tea and so much more. Not so sweet at all and very enjoyable now. Definitely something I might not be able to experience again perhaps.
