2017 Ashes & Diamonds "Blanc No.3" Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc - Semillon

SKU #1543927 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a barrel-fermented blend of Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc made by Steve Matthiasson for the winery. Aged 10 months in French oak, 30% of it new, it is sublime and racy, tasting of candied lemon and exotic feijoas, with lasting freshness and complexity. (VB) Inner quote mark (11/2020)

Outer quote mark This definitely smells like an oaked Sauvignon/Sémillon blend but closer in style to a white bordeaux than anything that comes out of Margaret River in Western Australia. There are subtle herbal notes, a touch of grapefruit and clementine pith, as well as a creamy/mealy side to it from the oak and the lees but most of all it is fresh and lively, and well rounded for a wine of such modest alcohol. Nicely integrated oak, which adds as much to the rounded texture as to the creamy flavour. Succulent, fresh, seamless. Not intense but persistent. Elegant, too. (JH) Inner quote mark (11/2020)
