Honeysuckle, apple pie, nutmeg, hazelnut and cedar on the nose. It’s full-bodied with bright acidity. Concentrated and rich with toasty, nutty layers. Drink or hold.

Pretty pineapple and melon notes as well as honeyed floral nuances emerge from the 2019 Semillon, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a richly textured, ripe mouthfeel, good balance, and a great finish. It will unquestionably stand up to some solid Bordeaux Blanc out there and should keep for 7-8 years given its concentration and bright spice of acidity.
Brimming with complexity, this sleek Semillon boasts pronounced aromatics and an intense and flavorful profile, carried by a mouthwatering vibrancy. The wine presents aromas of lanolin, orange blossom, honeysuckle, and melon, leading to a palate replete with lemongrass and Key lime, along with appealing green fig and hazelnut notes. The finish is refreshing and succulent.
Blend: 88% Semillon, 12% Sauvignon Blanc
