Clos du Soleil Winemaker's Series Sémillon 2019

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Dhaliwal Bros. Vineyard in Oliver, this aged on its lees for six months in stainless steel (72%) and French oak puncheons (28%) prior to bottling. You won't pick up a lot of oak character, though. This is quite mineral driven, with a saline quality that's backed by juicy yellow fruits, grassy herbs, and lees. Even at 12.4% abv, there’s still some broadness to the chalky texture, complemented by a refreshing crispness. Still very youthful at this stage, it will benefit from a quick spin in the decanter. It really evolves in the glass over time, so be patient.Tasted: 25 August 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 21.90 winery online/direct Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
