Haut Espoir, Semillon, Franschhoek, South Africa, 2016
This crisp and dry Semillon, which at only 12.5% abv, demonstrates that high alcohol is not a requirement for New World wines to show complexity and depth. Flavours and aromas of Fynbos develop into lanolin and honeycomb on the persistent and finessed finish.
It has a great deal of ageing potential as well, which we can testify to having recently tried the 2006 vintage, which is aided by 17% of the wine being aged in Hungarian and French Oak.
