A golden-green hue in colour, this wine awakens the olfactory senses, with some classic Semillon notes of sweet peas and fresh green herbs, coupled with whipped egg whites and hints of oak on the nose. That lovely fresh sweet pea flavour comes through again on the palate. This is an unusual, complex wine that deserves contemplation.
Groendruif, directly translated from Afrikaans, means ‘green grape’. However, during the 70s and 80s, South African
farmers would adopt their own names for certain grape varieties, with Sémillon being dubbed Groendruif, thanks to its fresh nose of interesting vegetal note such as artichokes. For this bottling, we’ve found the full expression in the hills of Darling where location dominates the varietal’s characteristics
