Boekenhoutskloof Semillon 2006

Good with maasbanker.

Five days in Paternoster and plenty of fabulous wine. Particularly memorable was the Boekehoutskloof Semillon 2006 enjoyed at local restaurant Oep ve Koep run by journalist-turned-chef Kobus van der Merwe and family. Van der Merwe keeps his ingredients as local as possible and we had the wine with dish called “Mosselbank at Low Tide” – maasbanker bokkom, sea lettuce. soutslaai, pear, almond. celery and ginger. The Semillon showed superbly – lots of concentrated lime and green apple with the first hint of that waxiness which Sem shows after some time in bottle. Score: 18/20.
