Tim Atkin über: Semillon

-- Tim Atkin: Boekenhoutskloof's Semillon is the only wine that Gottfried Mocke makes from a flat vineyard – and what a site it is, planted in 1902 on François Malherbe's farm. Blended with a 40% contribution from much steeper La Colline, it’s subtly wooded, with lanolin, citrus and some stony sap, lovely balance and just a hint of extra perfume from a splash of Muscat d'Alexandrie. 95/100


Decanter über: Semillon

-- Decanter: Vines planted in 1942 and 1902 (South Africa’s oldest Semillon vineyard) on François Malherbe’s Eikehof property are the cornerstone of this brilliant wine, joined by 40% from Chris Alheit’s La Colline vineyard, planted in 1936. Vines from both have mutated to the red-skinned Semillon Gris. Also blended in is 4% of early-picked Muscat of Alexandria from the same 1902 vineyard, to give acidity rather than aromatics. It is fermented and matured in amphorae, while the Semillon ages for 14 months in 70% new french oak barriques and 30% in concrete eggs. Just a baby – it'll shine in a decade – but already delicious, showing complex flavours of waxy lemons, sherbet sweets, meadow flowers and lemongrass on a creamy-textured palate. Vibrant, structured and concentrated. 95/100


Galloni über: Semillon

-- Galloni: The 2018 Sémillon comes from vines planted as far back as 1902, the fruit whole-bunch-pressed and fermented in a combination of French barriques, concrete eggs and clay amphorae. It has a defined bouquet of yellow flower (dandelion?), white peach and subtle lime aromas. The palate is well balanced with a dab of ginger on the entry and a waxy texture. Peach skin commingles with chamomile toward the finish. This is a classy Sémillon. 93/100

Mein Winzer


Boekenhoutskloof (Buchenholztal) wurde 1776 von aus Frankreich ob ihrer Religion vertriebenen Hugenotten in Franschhoek gegründet. Erstmal ging es da nur um Obstanbau, Wein kam viel später. Hier passt alles frankophil zusammen, eben „Klein Frankreich“ am Kap.
