A blend of Semillon, Muscadelle, Colombard, and Palomino.

Winery's Tasting Notes: "Light to medium-light yellow-gold. A cool nose of lemon, white fig, grapefruit pith, Read More...
and quinine is marked by a hint of lanolin (no doubt from the Semillon). On the palate, medium-full bodied with a pleasant viscosity. Flavors of lemon, quinine, and grapefruit persist through the dry, mineral-laden finish. If you prefer oaky and/or low acid whites, then this wine is not for you. But if you love white Bordeaux, dry whites from the Loire or Savoie, or even some the cool old-vine white blends from the Swartland in South Africa, then this wine should be right up your ally. Enjoyable now as long as you donít serve it too cold (a decant helps as well), given the zesty acidity and pleasing phenolics in the finish, we suspect this wine will age well. Enjoy from 2016 through 2023."

STEPHEN TANZER 91 POINTS - "Brassy orange. Smoky aromas of orange marmalade, apricot pit and botanical herbs. Very sweet, palate-coating pit fruit Read More...
flavors are complemented by licorice and singed orange, with a late note of candied red berries. Clings impressively on the finish, leaving intense smoke and spice notes behind. This thick, weighty wine should be served by itself as I suspect it would overwhelm all but the most decadent desserts."

Looking for a perfect dessert wine to go with apple or pumpkin pie?...Look no further! Made from one of the grapes typically used to make the famed, long-lived wines from Sauternes, Waterbrook picked their Semillon after a hard freeze in late November. The grapes are picked then pressed while still frozen. Much of the water (still frozen) stays with the pressed grapes, and the free flowing juice is highly concentrated with sugar. The wine naturally stops fermenting to higher alcohol levels, and what is left is concentrated, intense, and decadent. A ridiculous value, this wine just scored 92 points from Wine Spectator!
