Exoerience started with my forgetting to treat this white like a big red and let it breath. So after an unpleasant first taste (where I was trying to determine if the wine was corked), I let it sit for a day (a must for this wine).
The wine was the complex and interesting one that I remember it to be, but I didn't love it.
The semillon comes out strong in the nose and finish, which seemed to define the taste a lot. It was complex and interesting, but not the gem i remembered or was hoping for.
Another fabulous vintage of this great white, in my mind one of Niagara's 'Top 5' best white wines - Deep gold, full bodied with a nose of apricot, honey, pear, peach apple and caramel, very complex, well structured, intense, sweet on the palate and long on the finish, excellent! (91 Points).
A bit of an odd nose, but it came around. Better on the palate with citrus tinged melon and pear notes. I was impressed that this hung on so well. It definetly opened up with time and became much more balanced. Very good.
