Late Harvest Sémillon - Orange Wine - (90pts WA)
Named Italian for “yellow”, this late harvest Sémillon was produced in a dessert wine style. These grapes were skin fermented for 3 weeks and aged in French oak barrels un-topped and allowed to oxidize for 2 years. pH 3.95, TA 6.8 g/L, Residual Sugar 48 g/L, 15.2% Alc/vol, 55 cases produced, 500 ml bottle.

2013 – 90 pts Wine Advocate The 2013 Giallo Semillon, in the small squat bottle, is a late harvest wine with 48 grams per liter of residual sugar and 15.2% alcohol. Calling this sweet would be a bit of an exaggeration, though. It really isn't that sugary, although it does have a touch of that something different that takes the edge off as it finishes. It is quite cloudy to boot, looking more like non-fortified apple cider and tasting a little like a dry cider, too. (With less apples, of course.) As it airs, there is some serious pop on the finish and it shows fine structure. This works pretty well, but the alcohol does pop out here and there, my only quibble. It doesn't destroy things, but it will be interesting to see if it holds itself in balance as time goes on. It seems pretty fine now. There were 55 cases of 500-milliliter bottles produced.
