Forlorn Hope Semillon Nacre 2013
The Nacré is produced in the same fashion as the Sémillons of Australia’s hunter valley and is capable of decades of aging. The wine bears the name nacré meaning mother-of-pearl as a testament to its affinity for pairing with oysters. Done in the style of the great semillons from australia’s hunter valley. Crisp, racy and focused, with layer upon layer of flavor that opens up with decantation.
Grown in the heart of the Napa Valley, just north of the town of Yountville, by the Hoxsey family. Planted in the 1950s by Andy Hoxsey and his father; the soils are a mix of alluvial loam, river cobble, and volcanic. The vines are organically tended and dry farmed.
