An odd old experiment

I took this to my cellar in France on release and dragged it back on my way to the bin. It isn’t bad at all.

Semillon 2000, Moss Wood

This smells amazingly oaky, but it has seen no new oak at all. It has some waxy, lanoline character as well. Not much in the way of fruit, it has to be said, but it still smells quite pleasing. The palate is big but not at all flabby. There is a bit of lemony fruit here, and it tastes vanilla-y as well. This is really quite nice, despite it not being a terribly conventional wine. Good result from the experiment.
