This is our first 100% Semillon bottling !  (Most of our prior vintages have been blended with 15 -25% Sauvignon Blanc.)  Given that we are usually very enamored by the synergy of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, we were surprised that the 100% Semillon showed so well in our blend trials. Sometimes Semillon can be a little ponderous, but the 2016 Frostwatch Semillon has the right amount of vivacity and overall brightness to balance the weight and viscosity that the Semillon varietal possesses. We attribute that complexity to the mystery Semillon clone we received in 1997, as well as the unique climatology of the Frostwatch Vineyard. The long hang time (the Semillon is always the last grape picked each year) allows the variety to retain the balance that the variety can lose in warmer climes. Our Semillon shows a nice balance with notes of stone fruit and figs. As with the Kismet, the wine will pair well with seafood and poultry. Furthermore, the wine will compliment pastas with cream-based or butter-based sauces. We think this Semillon is a good wine simply to sip on its own or as an aperitif.
