Chrome 'Yellow'

Semillon, 2017

South Africa White

Coastal Region 75cl

Buy a case for 136.00 (11.33 per bottle)

100% Semillon from a block of old scrubby bush vines in Franschhoek planted from 1930. The texture and flavour comes from the poor soil and the character of old bush vine plantings. The wine is unfiltered, pure and bright. Despite its Franschhoek heritage, it is registered as W.O. Coastal Region.
Very interesting wine this. Taught and minerally. Classic Semillon nose, some lanolin, citrus, and nutty oak.
Fresh and bright, crisp and lemony, steely even- yet not ungenerous, hints of spice and nutty French oak too. Long and minerally, the wine unfurls beautifully gaining more texture and depth with air. Terrific wine.
