2017 Carpenter Sémillon


The 2017 Sémillon’s aroma is dominated by citrus, particularly key lime, and the smell of wet stones, with just a touch of melon and yeastiness from the lees contact.

A bright, almost flinty character carries through on the palate from start to finish. There is a ton of tang and citrus rind here, and the finish is like sucking on a river stone. As a variety, Sémillon has the reputation of developing well in the bottle, and this wine should live up to that – the edges softening slightly and the intense minerality receding to yield more fruit. Don’t be afraid to let this sit for a year or so.
