Description

"Semillon is an unsung hero in BC, a rarity that I seek out. Most often it's blended with sauvignon blanc, but in BC, as elsewhere, it rarely stands alone. Lock + Worth is one of the sole producers that makes one, and a single vineyard one at that. For the first time, L+W's semillon is coming from Losthorn Vineyard in Okanagan Falls. Planted in 1995, this was native fermented in neutral French barrels before resting there briefly and being bottled unfined and unfiltered in January 2019. Though from a different vineyard, this reminds me of 2016, with a gentle, composed generosity to the palate, textured with sea salt, meadow grasses, thistle that extends long along the medium-bodied palate. Very youthful, this drinks well now but has a long future ahead." 91 points
