October 19 Meeting – Semillon Tasting Program Available

At SHW’s October 19 meeting we tasted a vertical flight of semillon made by SHW member Rex Johnston. Chick Brenneman guided us through the tasting and now shares his PowerPoint program slides. You can see the presentation here and you can also find it on the Club’s website under Member Resources – Speaker Resources.

We thank Rex and Barbara Bentley for the unique opportunity to taste Rex’s semillon via a carefully curated vertical of five wines from 2004 – 2008, all from the same vineyard and fermented with the same yeast. Additionally, we were treated to a 2012 botrytized semillon. Our appreciation is also extended to Chik for coordinating the October program with Rex and Barbara.

Two bottles of Rex’s semillon were raffled at the October meeting resulting in $190 of your generosity – thank you for your support! We also thank Tammy Cross for making sure that you had the opportunity to win. We have a few more bottles of Rex’s semillon stored in Chik’s temperature-controlled cellar and those will be a part of future fundraisers.
