The Smuggler's Boot Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, Western Cape, 2017

Lot: 1061 Supplier: RICHARD KERSHAW WINES Country/Region: South Africa /Western Cape Major Grape: Sauvignon Blanc

This is the first year Richard produced Smuggler's Boot Sauvignon Blanc Semillon and on tasting I was blown away. It absolutely stood out in the lineup of wines with an intense, mellow spicy bouquet with vanilla honey and ripe stone fruits. This is a complex and intense wine with a certain earthiness to it. It is persistent with a flintiness and flavours of lime and custard. Grapes were grown in the coolest regions of South Africa. A blend of approximately 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Semillon. Two thirds of the Sauvignon grapes were grown in Elim close to the Southern tip of Africa. The balance of Sauvignon and all the Semillon was grown in Elgin at high altitude. Semillon was fermented in new and old French oak barrels.
