Our estate-bottled Sémillon, a dry white with a little Chardonnay and a touch of Muscat for added complexity and acidity, is grown at our Carsi Vineyard in Yountville. With excellent texture and a nutty, figgy character, enjoy now with light salads seafood dishes.
We use the same seductive Muscat of Alexandria grape as for the sweet Muscat; we just make it in a crisper, drier style. This is accomplished by picking a little earlier, when the acids are a little higher, and fermenting it a little longer, so as to reduce the residual sugar in the finished wine. It has an intense, floral aroma, and its pale-clear color belies its abundant flavors, rich with honeysuckle, green apple and ripe peach.
New Vintage! This nearly dry, spicy white wine, known for its exotic aromas and flavors reminiscent of cinnamon, apricot, lychee and perfumed rose petals, has concentrated fruit flavors of delicate ripe pear plus mild spice balanced by supple acidity.
Riesling lovers will be very happy to know that we have just bottled the third vintage of our terrific 100% Napa Valley Riesling, grown entirely at our Henry Ranch and named “Secco” for its drier approach to the grape.
