The 2011 vintage Gemini is a blend of 88% Semillon and 12% Sauvignon blanc. All grapes were harvested on Sept. 10th and co-fermented (together in the same tank). The wine was barrel aged sur lie with 20% new French oak to enhance the aromatics and fullness of flavor that is evident in the finished wine. Lightly herbaceous aromas of pineapple and grapefruit, flavors which are soft and fruity, with a lingering finish. While currently very enjoyable, patience in aging will add depth and complexity to the experience that only a predominately Semillon based wine like Gemini will give.
