The Old Vine Series Kokerboom 2016
By Christian Eedes, 11 August 2017
From Olifantsrivier Semillon planted in the 1930s. The hot and dry conditions of 2016 have led to a wine of particular richness and ripeness in the case of this wine (alcohol is 14.5%). On the nose, the wine shows some hay before lime, white peach and green melon. The palate seems even more full and round than usual with a creamy texture undercut by tangy acidity, the finish gently savoury. Approximate retail price: R310 a bottle.
Editor’s rating: 92/100.
