Steele Canyon Cellars is located in the rolling, heavily wooded hills of eastern Napa, just south of Lake Berryessa.   This 2012 release is Steele Canyon Cellar’s first Napa Valley Semillon.  It was hand harvested in small baskets from the Silverado Trail vineyard on October 23, 2013 at 23.7 brix.  The fruit was rushed to the winery to start a long, cool fermentation using QA 23 yeast.  After fermentation, the wine was divided into two parts, one aged in stainless steel and the other in second vintage French oak barrels in Steele Canyon Cellar’s aging cave.  This is an appealing white wine alternative to pour before meals, or serve with baked chicken or roasted turkey.
