2016 Myriad Cellars Tofanelli Vineyard ‘Old Vine’ Semillon, Napa Valley

Semillon has found a natural home in the Tofanelli vineyard. One of the very first white wine grape varieties planted by European settlers in the 19th century, this historic vineyard is blessed with a rich heritage of old, low yield Semillon vines. The 2016 season brought forth an exotic & layered version, proving to be lively, zesty and crisp with plenty of fruit flavor and old vine complexities. Gleaming pale and delicate straw hues greet the eye commingling with a lush bouquet of lemon sherbet, floral undertones and a touch of lavender. The clean mid palate is full of zesty lime/citrus flavors and shows an attractive acidity on the finish. This wine shows off its energy at the start, yet finishes with lengthy elegance and grace.  A stunning rendition of our most popular white wine. Enjoy now and for the next few years.
