Dry White Varieties (<5g/l or up to 9g/l if TA <2g/l lower) () Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2020 and older


NOSE: Clean, fresh and herbal, hints of fruit, subtle toasted tones. Nettle mingles with hints of fresh fig, ripe apple and sea spray. Medium plus intensity PALATE: Dry, but voluptous. The fruit is prominent initially, the the fleshy fig following through and traces of sea vegetation overlaying the toasted almond from the subtle French Oak. Satisfying and weighty middle palate, finishing generously.

This spicy, cool climate Semillon pairs well with Cape Malay cuisine like gentle curries, samoosas, Bobotie, Briyani. The wine stands up well to spicy flavours as well as to citrus notes like lemon , lime and orange in a sauce.
