Limited Edition Semillon

Vineyards

Annelie Viljoen (Viticulturist)
Sourced from low yielding bush vines in the Perdeberg area to ensure concentrated flavours in the berries. The vines are grown on slopes facing in a westerly direction, in medium deep shale, granite and sandstone soils and irrigated only when necessary.

Winemaking

Deon Boshoff (Cellar Master) / Elize Coetzee (Winemaker)
Harvested by hand in mid-February at 23° Balling. The grapes were fermented in a single stainless steel tank at 13.5°C. After fermentation the wine was left on the primary lees and stirred occasionally to enhance the complexity on the palate.
