Winemaker's comments:

Our 2017 Semillon is a beautiful white gold colour. Aromas of citrus and pear, sugar snap peas, vanilla pod, zesty tangerine and ripe apricot greet you upon first inspection. Lemon-infused honey flavours along with white grapefruit complete the sensation on the palate. Poised fruit concentrates the mid-palate, after which the wine broadens out with a rich, almost waxy texture and bright acidity. A citrus and vanilla spice lingers on the palate long after the last drop. This Semillon will continue to evolve in complexity and richness with age.

Winemaker's comments:

Stone fruit aromas tinged with a honeyed note and a light lanolin nuance. A textural wine with lovey interplay of stone fruit - nectarine and peach - with vibrant lemon zest brightness and then a tangible flinty feel below. Appealing freshness of acidity which is contrasted by a structured, full-body from subtle use of oak. The finish is long and rich with just the gentlest hint of wax.

Origin: Western Cape Appellation: Western Cape

Winemaker's comments:

"Made from Durbanville and Stellenbosch fruit, Semillon gives a much smaller window to pick if you want to capture the seductive green apple, lemon & lime zest vigour. The nose is full of green apple, white peach pastille fruit and delicate orange blossom notes. In the mouth it is full, broad and glycerol with the most delicious texture, twinned with lime cordial, citrus blossom, green apple, white pepper and vanilla pod spice. A wonderfully harmonious, generous wine that retains the intensity and linearity of Semillon but with extra concentration and almost Chardonnay palate power. A real triumph." GS

Winemaker's comments:

Boekenhoutskloof Semillon is a deliciously rewarding wine that has a generous and mouth-filling quality, while maintaining a fresh and lively character. The bouquet is forthcoming with pronounced floral aromas that intermingle with lemon zest, roasted spice and white peach notes. Showcasing a kaleidoscope of flavours, the palate reveals notes of citrus and cassis that perform with charming intensity alongside chalky minerality and a waxy, mouth-coating quality. Its lovely complexity is complimented by firm mineral acidity, which results in a perfectly balanced profile. Extended lees contact contributes to the wine’s luxurious texture without an overpowering heaviness on the palate.

Winemaker's comments:

Early picking of the Semillon & Sauvignon blanc ensured that the 2016 Gouverneurs Reserve White retained the signature Elderberry and herbal, black currant leaf character. The palate shows elegance and complexity. Ten months ageing in 500 litre French oak barrels adds richness to the wine, balanced by the fresh acidity.
