Mon Vieux 'Aquifer'

Semillon, 2012

South Africa White

Swartland 75cl

A fabulous Semillon coming from 45 year old vines. Just 1500 bottles produced, wild yeast fermented and bottled unfined, appears to have been aged in French oak too.
Lovely nutty nose with ripe citrus and peach on the nose.
It's a rich wine with lovely lemon and tangy stone fruits, smoky with lots of toasty, nutty French oak. Good acidity too, the wine has texture and great length, the tangy fruit and oak combining well but for sure will only meld further with time in the bottle. Really classy- shame there is so little of it.
