Cape Mentelle Wallcliffe Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2019


From a trio of vineyards, the best parcels from each are selected for this wine. A blend of 79% Sauvignon Blanc and 21% Semillon, the wine is fermented and matured in oak, with maturation in older French oak on lees, lasting some fifteen months. A gleaming green/gold, the aromas weave through pears, hints of cumquats, spices, citrus, gooseberries and stonefruit notes, with a minerally backing. A supple creamy texture, balance and length are key here. The complexity offers up some nutty notes and there is also a fine line of acidity running the length. This is a superb example of what can be achieved with this blend. Enjoy now for the next six years.
