Over 40 years ago, a visionary grape grower named Bill Dillian planted these beautiful, head-trained Semillon vines in the sandy soils of Amador County, California - Shenandoah Valley AVA. Andis Wines took the chance to produce wine from this vineyard without knowing that one day it would be recognized by critics as a "Hidden Gem of California." the unique micro-climate and the high elevation of the Sierra Foothills develop fruit with great acidity and balance.
Brisk citrus notes are tempered with a kiss of oak aging, creating elegance and harmony in the mouth and finishing with touches of lemon meringue.
It is a great companion for delicate cuisine.

Pleasant scents of hay, fresh herbs and dried apples lead to a rather rich, layered palate in this medium-bodied wine. Its mouthfilling texture is nicely balanced by wisps of crisp apple acidity. JIM GORDON

91 pts Wine Enthusiast (2019)

Nutty, stony flavors and a firm, dry texture give this medium-bodied and well-balanced wine a savory expression that's very appetizing but restrained. It opens up a bit with each sip, and will surely reward cellaring through at least 2024. JIM GORDON
