The 2015 Frostwatch Semillon exhibits traditional Semillon notes of fig, but also expresses honeydew melon aromatics and flavors. There are the intense honey-like flavors typically associated with noble rot as well as additional complexity due to the use of indigenous yeast during fermentation. This Semillon is weightier than most white wines, voluptuous on the palate with a silky smooth mouthfeel and a very pleasant, refreshing acid balance. It is perfectly suited as an aperitif wine but can also be enjoyed with spicy Asian cuisine or meat dishes that utilize salty-sweet marinades.
Varietal Composition: 83 Semillon, 17 Sauvignon Blanc Appellation: Bennett Valley AVA Aging: Semillon is barrel fermented with indigenous yeast, no Malo; Sauvignon Blanc is entirely stainless steel. 6 months of aging before bottling.
