Natalie's Score: 91/100

Seductively different! Incredibly that there's no oak as there's generous smoky notes o the nose and finish. Rich and full-bodied with lanoline and lemon. Try this distinctively different and delightful white.

Semillon food pairings: planked or smoked fish.

Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

What an exceptional way to expose yourself to the wonders of aged Semillon without having to forget about a few bottles for 7-8 years. Classic aromas and flavours of candle wax, preserved lemon, stone fruit (yellow plum preserve?), and a minerally edge. Proper aged Semillon is hard to come by, so kudos to Loan for slotting these away for all those years. I'm 90 on this wine. (ottawawinejournal.com)
This wine was aged 5 years in bottle before release, and it is a fascinating accomplishment. The aromas are varied and exotic with clay, yellow plum, crushed rocks, butternut squash and mineral oil. There is also a lovely birch wood complexity; think of the warm smell of a sauna. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, March 2013
