Pretty, slick, pristine.
A rarity in the Okanagan, this 100% Semillon comes from Hester Creek estate's Block 12 on the Golden Mile Bench. The vines were planted in '97/'98 and the wine was fermented in stainless steel and a small portion of French oak.
Honey, lemon curds, peaches and yellow pears, beeswax and straw flowers are delivered on the nose. Crunchy, pristine and well-formed, it has a kiss of sweetness carved off by lively acidity.
A pretty wine with a lovely slick mouthfeel and a zesty finish.
