2011 Myriad Cellars Semillon "Extended Elevage"
McGah Family Vineyard, Rutherford, Napa Valley
In 2011 a small block of Semillon became available from the McGah Family Vineyard. Located a stone's throw from several famous Rutherford vineyards, this sight is perfectly situated to produce world class Semillon.
This "Extended Elevage" version was aged Sur lie an additional three months in 50% new French oak , adding a beautiful layer of complexity and depth to this wine. With color similar to Napa Valley Chardonnay, this light hued golden beauty shines from the glass and emanates scents of honeydew melon, star anise, lightly toasted almonds and butterscotch. On the palate, raw clover honey combines with medium bodied intensity, embracing loads of sweetened minerals which fan out onto a finish that explodes across the palate.
Drink this wine with richer dishes or alone if you are looking for a more decadent white wine experience.
