Stag's Hollow Winery 2012 Semillon - 86+pts
Availability: Direct from the winery here
Production: 230 cases
Date Tasted: October 7th, 2013
Tasting Notes: This 100% Semillon, sourced from the Balwant Vineyard near Osoyoos, opens with a muted, yet, sultry nose of poached pear, lime rind and fig newton aromas. The palate ramps up the intensity with good texture and continuity from the nose while mineral and light oak notes contribute an added dimension to an otherwise straight-forward, seafood companion wine, though, a very well priced one indeed. May develop more complexity with heightened honey notes if given more time in the bottle, however, the price point lends itself to youthful, curious consumption. Drink 2013-2016.
