September 8, 2015
10 months in neutral French oak
2015 was another warm year with one of our earliest harvests to date. Yields were lower than the past few growing seasons, but the quality of fruit was exceptional with concentrated flavors and balanced acidity due to consistently warm temperatures throughout the season. The grapes for our 2015 Semillon were harvested in the cool morning hours of September 8, 2015.
The vineyards of Foley Sonoma lie at the heart of our estate in the Alexander Valley appellation within Sonoma County. Located just beyond the Foley Sonoma Old Vine block, this Semillon was planted in 2006, and has since been a powerhouse for Semillon. The fruit produces highly aromatic wines. Following harvest, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks and then racked to neutral French oak barrels for 10 months.
