The 2016 Little Frances Semillon is a golden straw colour with an aromatic profile of lime leaf and dried hay. On the palate, a hint of an early yellow peach gives way to a generous lemon finish. A refreshingly dry and complex wine.
Lake County rises high above the north end of the Napa Valley, over the Mayacamas Mountain range. Classic Bordeaux varieties dominate vineyard plantings in this agricultural basin. Warm summer days are moderated by the cooling mass of Clear Lake - California's largest natural lake. Since 2012, Little Frances has sourced Semillon from a single vineyard owned and tended by three generations of the Luchsinger family.
