Golden Cluster Charles Coury Vineyard Semillon 2017
We are excited to release the 2017 'COURY' Semillon, which marks the 51st vintage at David Hill Vineyard (aka Charles Coury Vineyard). This wine is pillowy soft with aromatics that are closer to white bordeaux that have Sauvignon Blanc in them. Our 5th year working with this historic fruit and every year we love this wine even more. Vintage 2017 was similar to 2015, a long growing season with temperatures never getting above 95. This vintage has the power of 2016 but with the delicacy and subtleness of 2014. Less lees left in bottle than the 2017, but without the expense of texture. More balanced alcohol with this vintage as well. As usual, we left this wine in bottle for a full year before release. Magic. Time will be kind to this wine.
