FRESH, DRY WHITES

Fresh, dry whites - SAUVIGNON-SEMILLON, ‘Simon and the Huguenots’. Stellenbosch, South Africa

2017 SAUVIGNON-SEMILLON, ‘Simon and the Huguenots’. Stellenbosch, South Africa

Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Grape Variety: 80% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Semillon, fermented in steel and bottled young to retain freshness
Producer: A wine from Villiera, about whom the UK agent Richard Kelley MW says:
"This substantial farm on the edge of the Stellenbosch appellation was purchased by the Grier’s in 1983, although they elected to keep the name of the previous owners, the de Villiers family. Of the 400 hectares, around half is dedicated to vineyards with the balance set aside as a wildlife reserve. This is the quintessential family business, with cousins Simon and Jeff working in the vines and cellar respectively, whilst Jeff’s sister, Cathy, runs the sales and marketing.
One of the early supporters of ‘green’ viticulture, viticulturist Simon Grier has always been a keen supporter of maintaining environmentally friendly vineyard practices. The farm has not sprayed insecticides for the past thirteen years and a flock of 1000 Peking ducks are responsible for some natural pest control."
This wine is named in honour of Simon van der Stel, the first governor of the Dutch Cape Colony who was responsible for providing land to the Huguenots
