Alheit Vineyards, Arrow Heart Sémillon 750ml 2014South Africa, Franschhoek
'For the geeks. 2014 from single Franschhoek vineyard. 75% red-skinned grapes, fermented separately on skins for a week - hence rich red-gold colour & tannic grip. Oxidative winemaking gives earthy, bruised apple note that scarcely detracts from purity & freshness.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5*
'The nose is very interesting, with earthy notes of bay leaf and white pepper. Glimmers of ripe tangerine and hedge fruit pierce the otherwise savoury scent. The palate has real substance and density. Despite the moderate weight of the wine, it remains quite powerful.' – Winemaker
