Haute Cabrière Haute Collection Amphora Semillon 2020
By Christian Eedes, 30 September 2022
The Haute Collection Amphora Semillon from Haute Cabrière in Franschhoek is “inspired by old Semillon vines” in the district, grapes in fact from a single block planted in the 1990s on Glenwood, winemaking involving fermentation and maturation in 450-litre clay amphorae.
The nose shows lime, white peach plus hints of waxy complexity and earth. As for the palate, this has good fruit definition, well integrated acidity and a gently savoury finish. A subtle and detailed wine with pleasing weight and texture given an alcohol of just 12%. Price: R450 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 92/100.
