The Old Road Wine Co. Grand-Mére Sémillon 2017 was awarded the Trophy for Best Sémillon (Gold 96/100) in the Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show 2021.
'Most of the Cape’s best Semillons seem to come from the same vineyard - La Colline in Franschhoek - and this is no exception. Mineral, taut and quite shy at the moment, this promises future riches. Lanolin, wax and citrus flavours are complemented by subtle oak. Drink 2019-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2018, 94/100

'From registered single-vineyard (as this range & Elite Syrah), dynamic 2017 plenty of semillon character (lemons, wax & honey) balanced by firm oaking (wholebunch barrel-fermented, 25% new French). Old vines, as name implies.' – Platter's Guide, 4*

'The wine is elegant and refined, with opulent pear, kumquat and citrus peel flavours, sweet exotic spice and a textured mouth-feel. The flavours evolve and persist from the entry onto the palate, with layers of succulent tropical fruit and candied citrus flavours unfolding. The well-defined fruit is balanced by a mouth watering acidity and a lingering minerality on the finish.' – Ryan Puttick, Winemaker
