2021 Semillon


100% Semillon
Single vineyard, Old Vine

Planted in 1936 by 4th generation Herbert Bernard Scholz. The old Semillon block has seen many seasons come and go, and is a consistent producer of high quality fruit, grown on a mixture of deep alluvial soil and red brown loam over clay on the banks of the North Para river.




The 20/21 was an exceptional wine vintage. Favourable growing conditions through all 4 seasons rewarded with
high quality fruit and good yields. Mild summer days and cool nights in January and February were perfect ripening
conditions. The result was pristine fruit, great natural acidity and flavour. Handpicked 3rd Feb.

Whole bunches are promptly processed, chilled and drained, retaining only free run juice. Juice is cold settled before a clean rack to ferment. Inoculated, then cool fermented in stainless steel. Soon after fermentation is complete the wine is stabilized and bottled to retain freshness and vibrancy.

Tasting Notes
Aromatics of lemongrass, ginger, spring blossoms and classic lemon and lime. Fresh citrus flavours and tight,
vibrant acid structure are the hallmarks on the palate. The finish is clean and long with fruit and acid working in
harmony. Always rewards patient cellaring.
