Thanks to the diversity of Franschhoek’s soils, the microclimates created by its mountains, and its world-class estates, it is a treasure trove for wine fundis. The Regional Series Franschhoek Semillon 2021 is a sublime blend of four local winemakers’ finest semillon barrels in a uniquely collaborative process. Subtle notes of lemon zest on the nose lead to an equally fresh palate, balanced by a rich texture indicative of quality time spent in oak.
