The Lane Vineyard Gathering Sauvignon Semillon 2016

The aromatics suggests a smokiness, like smoked butter meats preserved lemons, subtle depth on approach. 

Texture and mouthfeel are exemplary, acids backs up the palate and the barrel ferment character makes itself known again, a little bite and minerality toward the back palate. Lemongrass, lemon thyme - both make a gentle presence known. 

It’s not a wine that is about fruit, or necessarily about the winemakers guiding hand. It’s a wine best summed up as a gentle representation of these aspects. Gentle tugging length. Spot on! 92
