Conclusion and tasting assessment
What a beautiful wine. Unassuming at first with aromas of tinned asparagus, green banana, capsicum and sweet and sour starfruit, it evolves in the glass to share an alluring burst of jasmine, fynbos and citrus blossoms. In its youth,the wine opens up as it nears room temperature, displaying more lifted aromatics like ripe kiwi and cinnamon-dusted pineapple. The wine teases your palate, climbing in and out of its shell, sharing glimpses of itself at a time. In turn, the fruit sweetness on the palate is balanced with an authoritative acidity, anchored with a briny note adding persistence. Semillon lovers will appreciate the concentration of this wine, able to envision it ageing gracefully with more secondary and tertiary characters yetto develop.
