LS Merchants Da Bois 'Vin Ambre' 2018
'100% Semillon spending 6 weeks on skins in a funky egg fermenter. Pressed to barrel for a further 6 months of aging without any preservatives. Less stirring every week to keep the wine fresh and add texture. Bottled under cork with a small addition of sulphur. Spicy! There is the typical semillon hints of pear and grass with notes of aniseed, 5 spice and ginger. The palate is rich, textural and driven by fine tannin. A perfect match with antipasto, small share plates.. on the weekend with DaBois (and Girls! ) *Da Bois- is slang for the wood in French. Bois is often seen on wine labels to describe a wine that has spent time in oak barrels. It is pronounced de bwah in french OR da boyzz in the hood. Perhaps depends on the occasion or who you happen to be drinking with.'
