2015 Old Vine Semillon
2015 Myriad Cellars Tofanelli Vineyard ‘Old Vine’ Semillon Calistoga Napa Valley
In the heart of Calistoga, this site is perfectly situated to produce world class Semillon. The old-world farming techniques, dry farming and vine to vine attention Vince Tofanelli employs in his old vine vineyard is considered by many to be the soul of the Napa Valley. With color similar to Napa Valley Chardonnay, this light-hued golden beauty shines from the glass and emanates scents of crystalized pineapple, star anise, lightly toasted almonds and hints of butterscotch. On the palate, raw clover honey notes combine with a medium bodied intensity, embracing loads of sweetened minerals which fan out onto a finish that explodes across the palate. The extract, elegance and concentration wrapped up in this wine are a direct reflection of the farming practices that produced it & add a beautiful layer of complexity and depth to this wine. Drink this wine with richer dishes or alone if you are looking for a more decadent white wine experience. A perfect example of old vine character!
