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 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.
Learn more about our winery direct INSIDER DEALS here.
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 everyday 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!

Just 1,271 cases 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.
