Wildeberg White Barrel Fermented Semillon

£19.99

Wildeberg White Barrel Fermented Semillon Wildeberg White Barrel Fermented Semillon is made from ancient Semillon bush vines located in the Franschhoek Valley and naturally fermented in new and old oak. A complex white with savoury citrus notes, great texture in the mouth, layers of expression and great length.

Sourced from ancient bush vines in the Franschhoek Valley in the south-eastern corner of the Cape’s Coastal Region. Franschhoek is amongst the oldest planted regions in the Cape, with Sémillon having been planted here in 1679 by French Huguenot settlers. Naturally-fermented in new and older oak at our Franschhoek farm, there is very little magic involved other than the fruit itself.

Our first release of a Wildeberg White exemplifies the magic of Franschhoek. This first release is 100% ancient bush-vine Sémillon aged in new and older oak. The palate has an impactful attack of tight, bright, highly textural citrus tang and terrific mouthfeel. It’s a vast wine with layers of expression.
