"Giallo" - Late Harvest Sémillon - Orange Wine
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 Giallo – 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.
2013 Giallo – 89 pts Wine Enthusiast Bold and unconventional, there's nothing quite like this late-harvest wine. Made from Sémillon grapes left to ripen and shrivel through midwinter, it's deeply concentrated with dried mango and orange-peel flavors. Fermentation via natural yeast on its skins lends a deeply phenolic astringency to the palate. It's dusty and mineral with a sherried aldehydic character attributable to deliberate oxidation in barrels, yet somehow, it maintains a luminous core of fresh fruit. A curious and thought-provoking wine for the adventurous wine lover.
