Rijk’s Private Cellar Auction Reserve Semillon / Sauvignon blanc 2009

Grapes were picked by hand in the cool of the night. The Semillon was fermented in new 300 Litre French oak barrels and matured for 12 months on the lees before being blended with the Sauvignon Blanc that was 50% tank fermented and 50% barrel fermented. Soft filtration prior to bottling. Tasting note: Straw coloured with a green tint. Intense white asparagus and grassy nose – typical aromas for a cool vintage. Full bodied, juicy mouth-feel is finished off with a balanced acid to keep the palate fresh and zesty.

Winemaker: Pierre Wahl
