About this Item
This is the acclaimed maiden release of Semillon from Botanica.
'Fans of Ginny Poval’s Chenin will be excited to learn that her magic touch applies to Semillon too. This first release from a farm in Elgin was fermented in 2014 Chenin barrels and is delicious: waxy, spicy and herbal, with subtle oak, a drizzle of honey and a long, tapering finish. Drink: 2016-22' - Tim Atkin SA Wine Report 2016, 94/100
'Worthy first-release '15 joins illustrious range showing real Bordeaux character: oily texture, aromatic lanolin & white nuts, steely minerality. Elgin fruit fermented in older barrels produces an intricately detailed, complex stunner' - Platter SA Wine Guide 2017, 5*
