Amavi 2005 Sémillon (Columbia Valley (WA))

This exceptionally rich Sémillon is aged in neutral barrels. The fruit is firm and tart, showing a mix of pineapple and green citrus and berry. An underlying minerality adds texture and more firmness; the wine does not show excessive flesh, but is loaded with lovely acid and fruit, and a hint of toastiness in the finish. About one third comes from 25-year-old vines, some of the state's oldest Sémillon. Paul Gregutt
