2016 Charles Vineyard Semillon

September 11, 2018:

The Santa Rosa Press Democrat awarded our 2016 Semillon 4/5 stars, and named it one of "10 to try."

Wine writer Linda Murphy's article, "Enjoy the last hot days of the season with unique whites like chenin blanc," suggests: "For every summer-like day-into-evening, there is crisp white wine to quench the thirst, get the saliva jets firing and cool the palate. Chardonnay and sauvignon blanc are easy choices, but why not try something unusual, a bit more racy and altogether local?..."

The review of our Semillon reads: "Lemon oil and green-fig aromas lead to slightly tart but not sharp Meyer lemon and mandarine flavors. The midpalate is slightly creamy, the finish brisk."
