Alheit Vineyards
Arrow Heart Semillon, 2014
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Setting the wine world on fire with their maiden 2011 Alheit Vineyards Cartology release, husband and wife team Chris and Suzaan Alheit set out to harness the best old vineyards across the Cape. With a passionate and detailed focus on expression of place, sourcing tiny, long-forgotten parcels of predominantly white grapes, today they produce South Africa’s most profound white wines.Sourced from the single La Colline vineyard, planted in 1936 roughly 350m above sea level on a southern slope in the Franschhoek valley. Skin fermented Semillon Gris, with one quarter whole bunch pressed Semillon blanc. An inter-planted expression of dark- and light skinned Semillon vines that is now virtually extinct outside of Cape old vines, and so affords a chance to taste something uniquely South African.

 Wine Storage

"A first outing for this assemblage of Semillon Gris and Blanc from the La Colline vineyard. It’s a restrained, backward wine that needs time to unfurl its flavours. Six days on skins have given the wine texture and grape skin notes, complemented by toasty oak and pure, focused, citrus and lemongrass notes. Drink: 2015-21’ – Tim Atkin, SA Wine Report 2015. 94/100, Platters SA Wine Guide 2015, 4.5*
