Shannon Vineyards in Elgin strives to produce wines of elegance and finesse; wines that achieve power, not through higher alcohol but through core quality and complexity. The winemaking approach of minimal intervention highlights the difference in terroirs and emphasizes minerality and individuality. The focus of this white wine is based on a vineyard component arising from unique low yielding Table Mountain Sandstone soils. Using natural yeasts, Shannon Semillon expresses a very distinctive musky nose combining ginger, quinine, lime zest and cardamom in a minerally and flinty style. The naturally fermented Semillon, matured on the lees, provides a fuller mouth feel and adds to the complexity of the wine. It is round on entry, then dense and concentrated in the middle, with a saline element giving the spice and citrus flavors a tactile feel. This wine was vinified in a style that enhances the aging potential of Semillon.
