Cody Osmond's Picks
Mary Delaney Semillon is an intriguing offering from Botanica Wines located in Stellenbosch, South Africa. A gorgeous vineyard that also functions as a farm, growing beautiful protea flowers unique to the property, their wines are appropriately gorgeous (not to mention organic + biodynamic!). This particular line features artwork from the 1700s by Mary Delany.
This Semillon has spent a little time in barrel and its lees, giving it a kiss of butter and creaminess though it also boasts a healthy acidity to keep itself in balance. You’ll find notes of waxy pear-like fruit, green apple, and a hint of nuttiness- a nod to where this wine is going with age, which is a richer yet still light-on-its-feet kinda direction! This is a complex, textural wine that is lovely on its own or would also shine with any white fish, soft cheeses, or light vegetarian fare.View Product
