Clos du Soleil Winemaker's Series Sémillon 2019

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Dhaliwal Bros. vineyard in Oliver, this sémillon was whole cluster pressed and fermented in a mix of stainless and French puncheon, before aging on lees in the same for 6 months, with occasional bâtonnage. This is quite open and opulent for youthful sém, perhaps indicative of the super warm climate where it grows. Greengage, Asian pear, white grapefruit line the slender, fruity palate, with a fine stony hum on the finish. Pour now, alongside halibut or prawns or summer tomato basil salads.Tasted: 15 August 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 21.90 winery online/direct Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
