We often speak of the banner year 2017 was for the Texas wine industry. Warm growing days and cool night on the Texas High Plains, allowed grapes to mature a little slower than normal, retaining fruit characteristics and natural acidity. The 2017 Semillon is another fine example; a rare, single varietal bottling, indeed. 

The Bingham Family Vineyards have been growing Semillon for Becker Vineyards for many a moon. While we most often reserve Semillon for our beloved White Wing, this vintage stood out as particularly notable. We just knew it was going to age beautifully. Sur lies aging in French Allier barrels for nearly 4 years have provided the backbone to this lush, round wine. Beautiful aromas of gardenia and honeysuckle greet you, opening to further reveal vanilla, white clove and lime zest. With a voluptuous body, reminiscent of Chardonnay, blending lively citrus notes of a Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon is the perfect wine to showcase with friends, family and food.  

Aromatics: Florals of gardenia, citrus flower, saffron, ginger, and mild white licorice. 

On the Palate: Honey wax, apricot and hints of citrus, creamy mouthfeel, vanilla and toasted oak;
