Even better, the 2000 Semillon is a blend of 75% Semillon and 25% Sauvignon Blanc with some of the Semillon coming from 100-year-old vines. The wine was fermented in French oak for ten months and bottled without filtration in August, 2001. It displays a light gold color as well as aromas of wet gravel, honeysuckle, candle wax, orange marmalade and earth. Full-bodied, exceptionally fresh, rich and long, this remarkable white wine should drink well for 10+ more years. Yes, Terry Leighton marches to the beat of not just a different drummer, but a different solar system. These 1995 and 2000 whites are his currant releases. I have been a big fan of his wines for many years (I still have a few bottles of his 1981 Pinot Noir and some of his older Sauvignon Blancs and Semillons in my cellar); he is a master at making incredibly long-lived wines. His Sauvignon Blanc is California’s longest-lived Sauvignon. These are unbelievable wines from an eccentric genius.
