AA Badenhorst Family Wines Kalmoesfontein Semillon Noble Late Harvest Volume 2 2008

Botrytised grapes were harvested from unirrigated Semillon vines and pressed into a wooden cask for fermentation. The fermentation was very lengthy and took 18 months to stop naturally. The sugar content was extremely high and the yeasts only managed to ferment out at 8.68 vol%. The wine spent 24 months in cask before being filtered and bottled in 375ml and 750ml bottles. Tasting note: This wine has wonderful golden hues; aromas typical of noble late harvest – marmalade, dried peaches, apricots and ginger. The palate is generous in flavour and texture with a long, mouth coating finish.
