2016 THE SERPENTS - A dry Sémillon from 20-year-old vines from a single vineyard in Knights Valley.  Hand-harvested then fermented with indigenous yeast.  Aged one and a half years on its lees in Tuscan terra-cotta amphora and neutral French oak barrels.  Unfiltered.  A wine for immediate enjoyment or for cellaring.  Hand-dipped in beeswax.  175 cases produced.

  • On the nose, The Serpents begins flinty and steely, then opens up into rose-hip, pear, and lemongrass notes. 

  • On the palate, mineral and citrus notes expand into an elegant blend of elderflower, fresh grass, and honey.

  • The wine's vibrant acidity balances its dense texture and remarkable length.
