STEENBERG CONSTANTIA NATURAL SWEET 2017 – 375ml

Wine Club price R170.00p/b

Our 2017 Semillon is a beautiful white gold colour. Aromas of citrus and pear, sugar snap peas, vanilla pod, zesty tangerine and ripe apricot greet you upon first inspection. Lemon-infused honey flavours along with white grapefruit complete the sensation on the palate. Poised fruit concentrates the mid-palate, after which the wine broadens out with a rich, almost waxy texture and bright acidity. A citrus and vanilla spice lingers on the palate long after the last drop. This Semillon will continue to evolve in complexity and richness with age.

In the Cellar

After a very long and cool ripening season the two blocks of Semillon were harvested at the beginning and middle of March 2017 at 23.5°B. The grapes were crushed and de-stemmed with no prolonged skin contact.  The clean juice was racked after settling in stainless steel tanks overnight. Fermentation took place in a combination of 35% new, 40% second and 25% third fill French oak barrels. Only 500L and 600L barrels were used. Post-fermentation, the wine spent a further 9 months in barrel before being racked into a stainless steel tank, where it was lightly fined and stabilised before bottling in December 2017.
