2004 Stony Hill Semillon de Soleil

Vintage:   Wine:

Our 2004 Semillon de Soleil is pale gold in color and comes to you as a big, rich dessert in a glass! The aromas remind us of toffee and almonds, and you'll notice toffee and candied orange peel in the mouth as well, delicious and a bit different from the honey and caramel flavors we usually find. What makes this wine so delectable is the beautiful balance it strikes between sweetness and acidity, offering generous amounts of flavor and structure at the same time.
