Sourced from ancient bush vines in the Franschhoek Valley in the south-eastern corner of the Cape’s Coastal Region. Franschhoek is amongst the oldest planted regions in the Cape, with Sémillon having been planted here in 1679 by French Huguenot settlers. Naturally-fermented in new and older oak at our Franschhoek farm, there is very little magic involved other than the fruit itself.
Our first release of a Wildeberg White exemplifies the magic of Franschhoek. This first release is 100% ancient bush-vine Sémillon aged in new and older oak. The palate has an impactful attack of tight, bright, highly textural citrus tang and terrific mouthfeel. It’s a vast wine with layers of expression.
Ideal with delicate fish dishes, fresh oysters and prawns.
