The Smuggler's Boot Sauvignon Blanc Semillon Western Cape, 2018

South Africa

Grape Variety

Sauvignon Blanc

The Smuggler’s Boot range of wines produced by Richard is named after the time when South Africa was cut off from the rest of the world by trade embargoes. Grape growers and winemakers would smuggle cuttings into the country hidden in their Wellington boots. Grapes for these wines are sourced mainly from Elgin but also some plots further afield. The Sauvignon Blanc Semillon has delicious lime and creamy aromas over a flinty background. On the palate, passionfruit and mango flavours show through with a good mid palate and fresh crisp limey finish. It is a blend of 46% Sauvignon Blanc and 54% Semillon. All grapes were hand picked between February 22nd through to April 5th for the final lots of Semillon. Sauvignon Blanc was fermented at low temperature in tank and the Semillon in a mix of new and one-year old oak barrels.
