Adam Mason Raised by Wolves La Colline Semillon (Groen Druif) 2017
Quintessential Semillon texture forms the core of La Colline Semillon which shows energentic, bright flavours and subtle stone fruit characters. The Colline vineyard in Franschoel is South Africa’s oldest repository of the variety – planted in the 1930s – and provides fruit to many of the top young producers in the country. The wine is fermented and aged in used oak.
With a lengthy, successful stint at Klein Constantia under his belt (amongst other things), Adam Mason is currently Mulderbosch's head winemaker, one of South Africa's established vinous stars. His wines are made from a selection of unique vineyards from his travels around the Cape and are produced in limited quantities, making them rare examples of the Cape’s most interesting vineyards. Small batch, experimental wines like these are at the forefront of what has transformed the Cape into one of the most dynamic regions in the world, the name parodying the constant one-upmanship of winemakers.
My wine is a single vineyard." ... "Yeah, well my wine is naturally fermented." ... "Oh yeah, well my wine is hand sorted by berry." And Adam's response: "Well my wines are all of the above, and I was raised by wolves."
The Raised by Wolves wines are all vinified with minimalistic intervention to allow the true character of the varietal and the site-specific terroir to shine through.
