A special 40% off chance to taste the grape behind some big-name Bordeaux white wines. And it's from a favorite producer too. Don't miss the 92-point Amavi Cellars Semillon.
As we said above, we've got a special one today for the white wine lovers from one of our favorite producers, Amavi Cellars.
We first offered this wine back in March and gave it a very high score of 9 on our Taste rating scale, which corresponds to 91-93 points on the traditional 100-point scale. At the time, it didn't have any other outside ratings. In September; however, Wine Enthusuast apparently agreed with our assessment, giving this 2019 vintage 92 points.
It's not often you get to taste a single variety Semillon (sem-ee-yon) aged in (neutral) oak -- although to be fair, as is common in France, this one also has a little Sauvignon Blanc blended in.
And it's definitely not every day you get to taste one that is as delicious as this dry example from Washington State where there are only about 100 acres planted (despite the fact that this can be a great spot for it).
The Amavi Cellars Semillon is 85% Semillon and 15% Sauvignon Blanc from estate vineyards in the Walla Walla Valley (59% Les Collines, 19% Goff, 17% Seven Hills East and 5% Summit View). The wine is aged in 100% neutral French oak.
Typically priced at the SRP of $25 and only available thru the winery, today's Insider Deal slashes that price by 40%!
For the next day you can get 4 bottles of the Amavi Cellars Semillon for just $59.99 or only $15 a bottle.
That's a discount of over 45% (keeping a total of $55 in your pocket) after factoring in the additional savings from our super low $5 shipping! Buy multiples and you save even more since you'll never pay more than $5 shipping, no matter how many 4-packs you buy.

(These states are dependent on the individual licenses of the offering winery. Future deals may have more or less states available.)

Just 1,271 cases of the 2019 Amavi Semillon were produced and it is made in the dry style (this is not a sweet dessert wine like you find in Sauternes).
From the bottle:
100% Estate – 100% Sustainable – 100% Walla Walla Valley
The name Amavi (ah-mah-vee) was coined by combining the Latin words "amor + vita + vinum" (love, life and wine). Amavi is family owned, and we grow our own grapes. Our vineyards straddle the Washington/Oregon border in the high desert climate of the Walla Walla Valley AVA.
Produced & Bottled by Amavi Cellars
The 2019 Amavi Cellars Semillon begins with a really lovely, enticing floral aroma of honeysuckle, melon and a touch of tropical fruit. It even has a bit of the waxiness (often described as beeswax) that is common to this variety and a touch of spice, which struck me as jalapeno believe it or not.
The balanced wine tastes vibrant and is loaded with acidity. It features similar fruit to the nose with lemon, pear and apple as well. It also has a lovely texture with hints of the waxiness from the nose carrying over.
It ends dry and long-lasting with a very satisfying, mouthwatering finish. This is an excellent chance to try a variety you don't find very often, especially in Washington State. This is also a white that will actually improve with some more bottle age so don't have any fear in stocking up.
