2008 L’Ecole No. 41 Estate Luminesce, Walla Walla
The L’Ecole No. 41 2008 Estate Luminesce is from Seven Hills Vineyard in Walla Walla Valley. Pale straw in color, this blend of 70% Sémillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc offers a nose of grapefruit and lychee with a touch of honeysuckle and slate. Bright minerality on the palate, with more grapefruit and citrus, the Luminesce finishes with a little touch of lemon zest. Perfectly balanced. A great pairing for seafood. Released in September 2009, Luminesce is 14.2% alcohol by volume. The fruit is sourced from sustainable-farmed vineyards, and the wines are certified Salmon Safe. Read more on Another Wine Blog.
