De Iuliis Aged Release Semillon 2009

250 dozen were held back for this five year aged release.

Still mightily fresh. Green apple, citrusy with a waxy character evolving.

Youthful is the word that I keep coming back to though. Tangy acidity frames the palate well. There's lemon pith too. That typical aged Semillon honey and toast character is starting to emerge but is being shouldered from the front by the citrusy goodness.

Well priced for what you get. There's plenty of gas still left in the tank and will easily age for the long term.

Very good.
