Description

The 2013 Semillon is sourced from 3.5 hectares of un-grafted old vineyards in Altamira at 1,100 meters altitude. Semillon is a variety that was introduced in Argentina at the same time as Cabernet Sauvignon, and while many old vineyards have been uprooted or re-grafted to other varieties, a lot of it is still used for sparkling. The whole-clusters are pressed in a basket press and the must goes to ferment, without very much protection against oxygen. 2013 is a similar year to 2011, with floral notes and good acidity. Fifteen percent of the wine fermented and aged for six months in new French oak barrels, with no malolactic. The nose is full of white flowers, juicy fruit and hints of sweet spices and subtle roasted sesame seeds that give some complexity, but do not overwhelm. The palate is fresh, with lively acidity and tension, the oak completely integrated into the fruit, leading to a pungent, mineral, chalky finish. Bottled one and a half months ago, it is drinking very well, but should also age well and develop complexity. I tasted 2009, the first vintage produced, and it is still quite young, with more waxy, honeyed and balsamic notes. This is a good white for the table, with weight and freshness. It does not overwhelm with exuberant aromas while showing the great potential of the Semillon grape in Mendoza.
