NAUDÉ Old Vine Semillon 2016 launched at Cape Wine

From old vines in Stellenbosch and Durbanville, this wine was greeted at Cape Wine with a reception as hot as the 2016 growing conditions.

Greg Sherwood MW had the following to say about it:

Semillon gives a much smaller window to pick if you want to capture the seductive green apple, lemon & lime zest vigour. The nose is full of green apple, white peach pastille fruit and delicate orange blossom notes. In the mouth it is full, broad and glycerol with the most delicious texture, twinned with lime cordial, citrus blossom, green apple, white pepper and vanilla pod spice. A wonderfully harmonious, generous wine that retains the intensity and linearity of Semillon but with extra concentration and almost Chardonnay palate power. A real triumph. Drink from release and over 20+ years. One of the best current examples of this variety on the South African market. Snap this up on release in South Africa in June.

(Wine Safari Score: 95/100 Greg Sherwood MW)

It’s still early days for the wine, but it’s bursting with freshness and concentration. We humbly recommend that you order now to avoid disappointment.
