2017 Semillon, Yorkville Highlands
100% BF, 100% Neutral French. 10 months in barrel. Released in 2020. Kept on yeast lees until bottled.
The great noble grape of Bordeaux finds a home in the warm climate of Yorkville Highlands, south of the Anderson Valley. Often used to counteract Sauvignon Blanc’s acidity and add richness, the Semillon on its own is a force to be reckoned with. This wine can age for another 5-7 years easily. Aromatics of lime, custard, and yellow fruits lead to a juicy, creamy mid-palate and will pair with roasted chicken, grilled fish, pork chops, and spicy dishes.
