Wildeberg Franschhoek 2020
This first release of Wildeberg White is 100% ancient bush-vine Sémillon aged in new and older oak. The palate has an impactful attack of tight, bright, highly textural citrus tang and terrific mouthfeel. It’s a vast wine with layers of expression.
Sourced from ancient bush vines in the Franschhoek Valley in the south-eastern corner of the Cape’s Coastal Region. Franschhoek is amongst the oldest planted regions in the Cape, with Sémillon having been planted here in 1679 by French Huguenot settlers. Naturally-fermented in new and older oak at the Franschhoek farm, there is very little magic involved other than the fruit itself.
Food Match: Perfect with delicate fish dishes, fresh oysters and prawns
