Wine Review: This almost clear colored Semillon from Washington State is very good. It opens with a mild Anjou pear like bouquet with a hint of wet stone and touch of peach. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mineral infused Anjou pear with notes of lemon and tart green apple. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. This Semillon is very food friendly and would pair well with lemon drilled grilled swordfish. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: This is 100% Birch Creek Vineyard Semillon that was fermented to complete dryness in stainless steel to respect the acid and food worthiness proffered by a cool 2012 vintage. Because of the grape’s typical flabbiness, it usually is blended with Sauvignon Blanc. This Semillon is a crisp, focused wine displaying lemon grass, honeydew melon, saffron and a hint of grass which seems to define classic Washington Semillon. Enjoy it with fresh chevre, asparagus, and your favorite shellfish.
