Waltz Vineyards, Sémillon 2017, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania
Tasting Note: A lovely sémillon with a vibrant streak of tart, green fruit that was grown on a mix of south-facing and north-facing slopes and aged in stainless steel.
Pale-intensity lemon in color, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of just-ripened white nectarine, almonds, walnut, starfruit, quince and blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied semillon has tart, medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity.
Bottle Note: Mostly commonly known as the grape used to make Sauternes, sémillon also produces dry wines with remarkable longevity. Our 100% unoaked semillon is a dry, full-bodied wine exhibiting citrus, green apple and minerality. As it ages, this wine will develop honey, nutty and waxy characteristics. 208 cases produced.
