Fleur du Cap Unfiltered Semillon.

This Unfiltered Semillon embodies great complexity and true varietal character through meticulous terroir selection and excellent craftsmanship in the Fleur du Cap cellar. 

"Our Semillon is an elegant wine with heaps of apricot and vanilla oak spice on the palate allowing it to be enjoyed even at mild room temperatures during the colder months. I enjoy drinking this wonderful food wine most during autumn with creamy wild mushroom risotto," says winemaker Pieter Bedanhorst.

Chef Craig Cormack says his ultimate pairing choice for the Fleur du Cap Unfiltered Semillon 2011 is a seared tuna enlivened with delicately pink Murray River Salt from Australia. Bedanhorst says Murray River Salt just adds an extra dimension to your dish and brings out the full flavour profile of the Semillon.

This wine is available at select fine dining restaurants, boutique wine stores or the Fleur du Cap cellar from around R95 a bottle.
