Case of Boekenhoutskloof Semillon
The nose shows aromas of ripe mandarin, orange blossom, angelica and gentle whiffs of lemon curd with a slight smokiness and a hint of crushed gravel. Layered fruit is offered on the palate with flavours of lemongrass, tangerine and a vibrant, zesty mouthfeel being perfectly balanced and not dominated by oak-derived spiciness and nuances of fenugreek, tarragon and dill. The mid-palate is full, rich and hugely complex, with attractive weight and a creamy, cedary character, balanced with a lemony freshness, suggesting tremendous ageing potential. The finish is clean, dry and flinty with a complex preserved lemon, citrus peel and grapefruit character and notes of celeriac, chamomile and fennel lingering in the mouth.
