Mt. Boucherie Original Vines Semillon 2022

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaLost Horn Vineyard overlooks Lake Vasseau and Macintyre Bluff, and turned 22 in 2022. The soil is a mix of glacially deposited rock in mounds with glaciofluvial sands and gravels, which seems perfect for sémillon. 60% of the juice was fermented in stainless steel, and the remainder was wild fermented in new French oak barriques with full MLF. This underwent bâtonnage over 6 months before a final blend, and return to stainless steel for 2 months. This is an intriguing wine pitching intensity, some richness, and honey with beautiful lean but ripe pear. This sophisticated front end leaks into a savoury orange streaked finish.Tasted: 13 October 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
