Conclusion and tasting assessment
The Robertsvleipad Semillon hails from the sandy soils of Franschhoek, a defining origin of stellar Semillon. There is a delicacy about this wine that will go unnoticed if you don’t take your time to discover it. The wine is still reticent for it sage, weaved with soft aromas of lime blossom, lemon,grapefruit, fynbos, and dhania. As it evolves, gentle notes of Granny Smith, lime, thyme, flint, and ginger takes shapeboth on the nose and follow through on the palate. Albeit somewhat timid in aroma, the validation of quality lies in the mouthfeel. On entry, the flavour fills your mouth and pull sthrough to the back of the palate, leaving a delicious and tangy aftertaste. Finely textured and balanced with as mooth acidity, a pithy and savoury finish leaves the palate feeling refreshed and invigorated.
