Divergence Wines Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc 2022

$35.00

Our Sommeliers are so happy to have discovered Divergence Wines – a virtual winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake crafting small batch wines – like this white wine – in the cellars at Marynissen Estate Winery.

This is an usual blend to find in Niagara as it is hard to grow Sémillon grapes, however winemaker Jeff Moote found some that were perfect to be the star of this white wine.

The individual wines – Sémillon  and Sauvignon Blanc – were both barrel fermented and aged in older French oak barrels for 10 months….then Jeff applied his blending magic! The result is an outstanding well balanced white wine that is worth every penny.

Full of fresh fruit (think juicy apples, lemon rind, melon) gorgeous texture, hint of warm spice with a minerality backbone and acidity that does not overpower but will give this wine exceptional longevity.

Enjoy sipping on its own, or make an artisan cheese & charcuterie board, pan fried fish or pork tenderloin would all be a perfect pairing with this stunning wine.

Ready to drink now or can age 2-3 years.

Divergence Wines is a hidden gem in Niagara that we are delighted to introduce you to!  So much so that we featured owner & winemaker Jeff Moote & his Divergence Wines in our Savvy Wicked Wines of-the-month club…because his wines are indeed WICKED!

This white wine that is a French classic – blending Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc grape varieties.  In fact, Sémillon grapes are rare in Niagara due to the difficulty to grow this variety. It is both winter sensitive and thin skinned, so it thrives only on a few select vineyard sites.

Sémillon from the Lizak Vineyard located next to Lake Ontario is blended with Sauvignon Blanc from a few kilometers away from Hughes Vineyard.

There is limited number of bottles available as Jeff made only a small batch of this wine…so hurry to order and add this wine to your cellar.
