Benguela Catalina Semillion 2017
This wine is ethereal and commanding at the same time. It allures with complex aromas of sweet peas, lemongrass, quince, orange blossom, greenage, white lily and fynbos. All these nuances reveal a remarkable fruit purity that lingers on the palate, etched with an oyster shell minerality and integrated acidity.

“More and more I find myself intrigued by this varietal, its ability to age and how it benefits from time in bottle. All the fine characteristics will be defined with age. It can be enjoyed in its youth, or be loved for its rich and layered secondary character as it ages.”
Cellar Grapes were hand-picked and sorted at the cellar. De-stemming and crushing was followed by two hours of skin contact. The juice was settled for 48 hours, racked and inoculated with a selected yeast strain. An 80% portion of the wine was barrel fermented and matured for nine months to add texture and complexity. The remaining component was fermented in tank at low temperatures to allow for maximum fruit and varietal expression.
Oak maturation: 9 months, 50% new 500L French oak Production: 3 barrels.
Harvest Grapes were hand-picked.
