2013 Estate Semillon Ice Wine - 375ml
This traditional Bordeaux style white wine is a classic blend of 50% Sémillon and 50% Sauvignon Blanc. It displays aromas of tropical fruit with layers of grapefruit, lychee, and citrus zest balanced with delicate rose petal and baby powder notes. In the mouth the tropical fruits are carried through and joined by pear, apricot and kaffir lime. The wine is held together on a backbone of crisp acidity and luscious texture.
Enjoy well chilled.

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.
