2020 Alheit Monument (La Colline) Semillon
This really is one of South Africa's special vineyards. It was planted back in 1936 on an elevated South facing slope overlooking the valley below. The parcel is situated between 310 m and 350 m above sea-level. The soil is mostly granitic with plenty of quartz. There are a few strains of Sémillon growing together here! the common green skinned version but also the red skinned version that harks back to the Cape’s older Sémillon vineyards, and and now unique to the Cape.
