Wildeberg White, 2018
Wildeberg is our small farm in Franschhoek. Only 10ha can be planted to vines, the rest is wild. The fruit for the Wildeberg wines comes from the Franschhoek Valley only, hand-harvested, naturally-fermented and gently matured in our mountain barrel hall on the farm.
|How it's made||
Sourced from ancient bush vines in the Franschhoek Valley in the south-eastern corner of the Cape's Coastal Region. Franschhoek is amongst the oldest planted region's in the Cape, with Semillon have been planted here in 1679 by French Huguenot settlers. Naturally-fermented in new and older oak at our Franschhoek farm, there is very little magic involved other than the fruit itself.
Our first release of Wildeberg White exemplifies the magic of Franschhoek. Being in this first release 100% ancient bush-vine Semillon aged in new and older oak the palate has an impactful attach of tight, bright, highly textural citrus tang and terrific mouthfeel. It is a vast wine with layers of expression.
Ideal with delicate fish dishes, fresh oysters and prawns.
