2009 was an exceptional vintage for Semillon in the Franschhoek valley and this is evident in complexity of this wine. Lively pear, citrus zest, freshly cut apple and blossom on the nose with attractive, wet stone, spiced oak and nutty undertones. An impressive structure underneath a lovely combination of stonefruit amongst others. The 13 months of lees contact lead to a rich, textured, broad and rounded mouth feel, yet appealingly fresh from the core acidity. With the lanolin and other tertiary flavours that will develop even more, this wine will be one of the most complex and balanced ever to be produced from these 106 year old vines.
