The grapes from this vineyard are some of the oldest, if not the oldest, plantings of the variety in Canada. Our Sémillon is highly aromatic with a lively start that leads to a lush mid-palate and a lingering creamy finish.
Our 2017 Sémillon is highly aromatic with beautiful layers of lemon curd, ripe pears, kiwi fruit, orchard blossoms, marzipan, and cantaloupe. These lively notes lead to a lush mid-palate and a lingering creamy finish reminiscent of Key lime pie. Enjoy a glass with poached steelhead trout and confit citrus sauce.
We encourage you to cellar a couple of bottles, under ideal conditions, for 7+ years from vintage date to experience the alluring rich bouquet that a well-made and cellared Sémillon offers. The viscosity enhances its elegance along with developed toasty, silky notes evocative of Seville orange marmalade on brioche, honey, dried fig and sweet hay. Savour the aged beauty on its own or with a simple cheese plate with a light veined blue cheese and pine nuts.
