“Simply sensational” – so opens the notes on the WineTrust website. They ain’t wrong. A fantastic blend of Chenin Blanc, Clairette Blanche, Viognier, Verdelho, Semillon Blanc, Semillon Gris. A little more age should reveal even more depth and complexity to its smooth depths.
“The name “Sequillo” captures the very essence of wine production in this area [Swartland], coming from the Latin for an arid, dry place of great purity.”
“[tweet_quote hashtags=”#wine #winelovers” ]Simply sensational – magical take on South Africa’s favourite white grape – Chenin Blanc[/tweet_quote]. – married with a mix of Rhône, Portuguese and French varieties. Savoury, intense and wonderfully concentrated and balanced, with notes of ripe peach, red apple, honeysuckle and almond. The best Sequillo white we have tasted.”
