Walker Bay and the Hemel-en-Aarde valley nearby the whale-watching town of Hermanus, is a relatively recent addition to South Africa’s exciting wine topography, with great potential for cooler climate styles not commonly found elsewhere in the country.
Light straw-coloured wine with a slight tinge of green. Aroma reminiscent of the sea breeze, with a hint of green fig, this Bordeaux blend is perfectly personified in the Walker Bay region. 50% of the Sauvignon Blanc underwent malolactic fermentation in barrels (80% new, 20% 2nd use), while the other 50% was fermented in steel tanks. The Semillon was fermented in barrels (all 2nd or 3rd use).
