MENDEL Semillon 2016
Bodega Mendel, Mendoza, Argentina
Light Gold yellow with some green hints. Fresh, elegant and intense. At the first sniff we get remarkable herbal, fresh, and citric notes, later we can find some typical descriptors of the semillon varietal: white flowers and honey. Some oak notes such as coconut and soft vanilla aromas appear from the 15% of the wine fermented in new oak. It has a good combination of fresh, sweet aromas and minerality, that ends in an elegant and complex white wine. The wine has a very fresh mouth filling and well balanced acidity that remarks the freshness of the wine. The aromatic in the back of the mouth are similar to those in the nose: citric notes and tropical fruit, and some coconut and caramel. It is a very dense, elegant, soft and velvety wine with a persistent end.
Good with chicken and turkey.
