Platter's – 4,5 Stars
Boekenhoutskloof Semillon is a deliciously rewarding wine that has a generous and mouth-filling quality, while maintaining a fresh and lively character. The bouquet is forthcoming with pronounced floral aromas that intermingle with lemon zest, roasted spice and white peach notes. Showcasing a kaleidoscope of flavours, the palate reveals notes of citrus and cassis that perform with charming intensity alongside chalky minerality and a waxy, mouth-coating quality. Its lovely complexity is complimented by firm mineral acidity, which results in a perfectly balanced profile. Extended lees contact contributes to the wine?s luxurious texture without an overpowering heaviness on the palate.
