Chronos Sémillon 2020

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaTasted two years on, this sémillon is shining with some bottle age, showing a combination of lemon, green apple, and toast, framed by a deft use of lees. There's a lovely richness now, giving this texture while also balancing the ripe, crisp acidity. Fans of Hunter Valley sém will know that the grape can't be rushed. That seems to be the case for the Black Sage Bench, too. This is sourced from Diamondback Vineyard, and aged in a combination of stainless steel and French oak (20% new), which is now fully integrated. This is likely just going to keep getting better with more time in bottle.Tasted: 05 February 2024Tasted by: Prices:
