LARA SEMILLON,
W.O. FRANSCHHOEK
(Sold per case of 6 bottles)

“For LARA, our white blend of our lives” This artistic combination of South African fauna and flora has been our inspiration for this bespoke regional white wine from Franschhoek, which is dedicated to our youngest daughter, Lara.

Our Semillon hails from the Glenwood farm, renowned for their Semillon grape terroir in Franschhoek. We played with a bit of whole bunch pressing and keeping the wine as long as possible on its fine yeast lees, creating a big concentrated wine with a fantastic mouthfeel.

The wine was allowed to undergo malo-lactic fermentation and was kept on its fine lees for 8 months. We decided not to age this batch in 3rd fill wood barrels, but rather in our stainless steel 1000L barrel tanks, with a special mix of ceramic & fire toasted premium French oak.

This is a complex wine with ripe apricot, orange peel and honeycomb aromas; Integrated French oak, showing some vanilla pod infusion with a sweet honeysuckle finish.
