Proxy 2015 Semillon
The 2015 Proxy Semillon was harvested on August 20th, 2015. After hand sorting, the grapes were pressed whole cluster. The resulting juice was fermented halfway in a stainless steel tank, and then sent to neutral barrels to finish fermentation. Once alcoholic fermentation was complete, the wine was stabilized to prevent malolactic fermentation, and spent the next five months aging sur lie.
In the glass, the Proxy Semillon is a lovely light straw color, with a hint of golden undertones thanks to the sur lie aging. The wine is enticing from the start with aromas of wet stone, mandarin oranges, and a subtle note of fragrant gardenias. The flavors echo the aromas, with a light minerality layered with lemon zest, tangerines, and just a hint of fresh almonds. The weighty, textured palate is balanced by a fresh and clean acidity.
