Driven by Semillon, one of the Cape's longest planted varieties, this is a blend of 80% Semillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc. The Grapes were harvested at 21°Balling and given 6 to 8 hours skin contact before fermentation. 30% of the Semillon was naturally fermented to add to the mouth feel. As the ripening season was very dry, we really tried to capture freshness, typical cultivar characteristics and fruit intensity in this wine. The finished wine is kept on the lees to just prior bottling for added structure and texture.
A lively, crisp white blend with grassy and fresh tropical fruit notes from the Sauvignon Blanc which when combined with the Semillon gives the wine an element of complexity and fullness.
