2014 Estate Semillon - 750ml
Formally exclusive to our wine club, the few remaining cases of Estate Semillon are officially released for purchase! A select few barrels of our estate grown Semillon were simply too good to blend into our house white and were reserved for this limited bottling. Aromas of Meyer lemon zest, honeysuckle and brioche greet the nose. Four months sur lie aging in neutral French oak contributed to the rich, creamy texture finishing with round and supple flavors of golden apples and honey.

DOUBLE RIVER VINEYARD
A 26-acre vineyard planted on the Double River Ranch, located at the west side of Highway 125 heading south towards Oregon on the Basel Cellars Estate Winery grounds. The site was established in the spring of 2000 and is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Semillon, Tempranillo, Cab Franc and Syrah. It sits at an elevation of around 900 feet and has many microclimates on the property, due to differences in exposure to sun and wind as well as soil composition. This provides us with many variances in flavor profile and varietal characteristics from block to block. A six million gallon pond was installed to provide enough water for irrigating the vineyard. The trellis systems used for Double River are Geneva Double Curtain (GDC) and Vertical Shoot Positioning (VSP).
Certified Sustainable: We are very proud to say that Double River Vineyard is sustainable and is considered salmon-safe.
