This Semillon is sourced from a vineyard grown on rich, decomposed granitic Tukulu soils in the Bo-Hoek region of Franschhoek. Harvest at low potential alcohol, the aim is to capture the transition between austerity and extravagance – a balancing act of the highest order to preserve the fruit’s natural acidity and to avoid excessive ripening. Once harvested, the juice is fermented in contact with the skins, utilising minimal-intervention winemaking techniques. A percentage of stalks were also used to provide a rudimentary filter for draining the resulting wine. After fermentation, the skin cap is covered with a layer of extra virgin olive oil and allowed to settle for 2 months in contact with the skins.
