Chrome Yellow Semillon 2017
Here is a wine that is the distillation of ancient Semillon planted in Franschhoek in the 1930s and 40s. All the texture, power and detail is purely an expression of this unique place. Whilst the palate is immediately super bright, shiny even, and with the classically brittle nature of finely defined Semillon, there is a generosity of body and structure beneath. Like a lick of liquid lightening, this wine will delight the palate and defibrillate the soul with its pithy, citrus appeal, bright acid and sandy texture.
100% Semillon from a block of old scrubby bush vines in Franschhoek planted from 1930. The texture and flavour comes from the poor soil and the character of old bush vine plantings. The wine is unfiltered, pure and bright. Despite its Franschhoek heritage, it is registered as W.O. Coastal Region.
