Wildekrans adds Semillon to collection
Wildekrans Wine Estate in the prestigious Walker Bay region near Hermanus, has introduced another superb white wine to the South African market.

Grown, made and bottled on the estate, Wildekrans’s Semillon 2003 is a wine with great complexity and character. ‘The Semillon was first harvested in 1998 on the estate, and we expect that Semillon as a cultivar will continue to grow in popularity in this country over the next couple of years,’ Bruce Elkin, winemaker and owner, commented.

Partially barrel fermented and matured for three months in French Oak barrels, this Semillon complements any seafood dish perfectly. Cool climate complexity and character, which are derived from low-yielding vines, bring about this wine’s characteristic crisp lingering finish. With herbal and green pepper aromas, the Semillon is definitely not only a feast for the palate, but also a delight to the nose. Bruce recommends savouring this wine with shellfish, fish curry or even sushi.

Born of the Overberg region, an area famous for producing world-class, award-winning wines, the Semillon 2003 will be a classic addition to your collection.
