We produced a Semillon in 2013 that was labeled “Vice Versa” because the wine was the opposite of our Kismet in a number of ways. It was predominantly Semillon rather than Sauvignon Blanc, it was off dry rather than dry and it was barrel fermented rather than fermented in stainless steel. While everyone loved the Vice Versa, many of our customers urged us to try producing a dry, rather than off-dry, Semillon.  After experimenting with various blends, our final cuvee is 83% Semillon and 17% Sauvignon Blanc. The resulting wine is voluptuous with a silky smooth mouthfeel and a very nice acid balance. The wine exhibits traditional Semillon notes of fig, but also expresses honeydew melon aromatics and flavors.  Semillon is susceptible to botrytis cinerea which is known as the Noble Rot.   In general, we can’t resist anything that increases complexity in our wines.  We note the intense honey-like flavors typically associated with noble rot but also an additive complexing due to our use of indigenous fermentation. This Semillon is weightier than our Kismet and is perfectly suited as an aperitif wine.
