Sorry

I am a little loath to post this wine (especially since I have a bunch of others to post!) because this is a wine that pretty much nobody will be able to find.  Selyem is one of those mailing list only wineries but it was the one my hand found as I was looking for a match for dinner.  As soon as those free samples start rolling in I’m sure I will have more main stream wines for you all ;).

This has a delightful nose of what started as lime zest and what struck me as cotton candy though I also smelled green apple and chalk as I swirled the glass more.  On the palate there is a splash of lemon juice bringing nice acidity to the minerals all coming together for a decently long finish.  I know they ferment in cement so the minerals are not a surprise.  A light a decent match for my pasta.  I would recommend if it was more widely available :(.
