2010 Stony Hill Semillon de Soleil

Vintage:   Wine:

We love this vintage of Semillon de Soleil!  Its pale gold color in the glass leads you to divine aromas of apricots and peaches layered with a sweet honey scent.  Several elements make this vintage a classic: the perfect balance between sweetness and acidity and the concentrated flavors of the Semillon grapes.  We simply lose ourselves in the rich taste of dried fruit and spices and in the vibrant mouth feel and rich and lingering aftertaste.
