Amavi Cellars Sémillon 2010

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

Aromas of white peach, honey and herbs along with honeysuckle, lychee and stone. It's round, yet crisp, fruity and earthy. Flavors of passion fruit, melon, citrus, peach and slate mineral. Great mouthfeel and a lively finish. Crisp acidity. 91 pts. 8/12/11 at Winery

Amavi Cellars:
Our name is a combination of the Latin root words "am" (love) and "vi" (life). It represents our simple pursuits: love, life and wine (or as we like to say: amor - vita - vinum). We pronounce it "ahh muh vee." You can be certain you are saying it the way we do if it rhymes with "momma me."

Our name is a combination of the Latin root words "am" (love) and "vi" (life). It represents our simple pursuits: love, life and wine (or as we like to say: amor - vita - vinum). We pronounce it "ahh muh vee." You can be certain you are saying it the way we do if it rhymes with "momma me." Located in the Walla Walla Valley, Amavi Cellars crafts elegant, approachable wines, focusing on estate-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. We also make small amounts of Sémillon, Rosé, and dessert wines that are typically available only in the tasting room. We are proud to be small and family owned. Two generations are active in management of the winery and the vineyards. Winemaker Jean-François Pellet is a third-generation winemaker and grape grower. Quality, hospitality and sustainability are our underlying values. We would love for you to visit us in our tasting room. Critics often say our wines have a phenomenally good quality-to price-ratio. Our estate vineyards—Les Collines, Seven Hills, and Pepper Bridge— are farmed sustainably. We build up the soil's health rather than deplete it and seek out earth-friendly alternatives to fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides. We are committed to not only preserving, but also improving the land for future generations. Read less
