This award-winning maiden vintage of Semillon is made from a 0.9-hectare single vineyard that performs extremely well every year.
“More and more I find myself intrigued by this varietal, its ability to age and how it benefits from time in bottle. All the fine characteristics will be defined with age. It can be enjoyed in its youth or be loved for its rich and layered secondary character as it ages.” – Johann Fourie

Appearance: Aroma: Taste
This wine is ethereal and commanding at the same time.
It allures with complex aromas of sweet peas, lemongrass, quince, orange blossom, greenage, white lily
and fynbos. All these nuances reveal a remarkable fruit purity that lingers on the palate, etched with an oyster shell minerality and integrated acidity.
The elegant wine debunks the myth of Semillon as a workhorse in the 80’s. It is admired for its intensity and age ability and this wine is the perfect example. It is a flagbearer for the estate, displaying definition and focus, complex yet gentle.
