David Franz Loan Vineyard Sémillon Naturel 2017

David Franz Loan Vineyard Sémillon Naturel has a very bright pale straw colour with hints of pale apple green. Fleshy ripe lemon and lime over summer grass all comfortably resting on a subtle savory bread-dough and cashew nut underlay. On the palate, waxed lemon citrus curd vies with textural mouth-filling golden brioche while honeyed oak evokes late Autumn and endless days. Textural fleshy mouth wraps seductively around a very Semillon center of poised acidity. The counterbalance of gentle assertive acid & generous fruit are framed with softly drying, very long finish.

Organic & Biodynamic Naturel Fermentation Sémillon. The grapes are picked on 24 February 2017 from single vineyard. 3.2 tonnes was picked from Rick and Jesse Loan's Organic / Biodynamic Bethany Rd Vineyard. Simply a Sémillon made in the purest way possible. Pristine fruit was picked, pressed to barrel then Nature did the rest.

Brilliant Sémillon that is suitable for every occasion. A Friday night in, Sunday morning by the pool, weekday chill, this bottle of white is versatile and can accompany you through any occasion and through any good or tough day. Pick this bottle up now, you won't regret it.
