De Iuliis Aged Release Semillon 2017

 

Aged Semillon is a beautiful thing. It was great to see the 2016 and 2017 aged releases from De Iuliis side by side. I preferred this 2017 to the 2016.

Polished, waves of citrus curd unfurl. That focused citrus presence is the driving force. It's concentrated with super length. Generous with rounded shoulders, there is some weight, lanolin and a faint cut herb edge. The acidity is well balanced too and it will continue to age gracefully for the long term. All up, it's a beautiful drink. 

Drink to ten years+
