2017 Stony Hill Semillion de Soleil

For our Semillon de Soleil dessert wine, we follow the Italian “passito” style. Ripe grapes are picked, then dried in the sun to concentrate the sugars before crushing. The result is a beautifully balanced sweet wine with moderate alcohol and good acidity.
The drama of the 2017 growing season is reflected in the glass with this vintage. Intensely golden color, it has aromas of ripe apricot, plum and licorice. Apricot returns on the palate, along with fresh plum, rhubarb and golden raisins. There is energy behind the fruit, bringing the wine length and appeal on a very spicy and candied finish. Serve chilled and pair this vintage with a stone fruit tart or an aged blue cheese.
