Franschhoek Vineyards Semillon dazzles at Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show

Semillon, the white grape known for its alluring fruit profile and complexity of flavour, is not quite as familiar with wine consumers in South Africa as in its native France. Locally it is rather better known as a blending grape with especially Sauvignon Blanc, but a single varietal rendition from Franschhoek Cellar has left the judges spellbound at this year's Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show. The Franschhoek Vineyards Semillon 2014 was crowned as the best example of the cultivar at this year's competition, receiving the Trophy for Best Semillon at the awards ceremony earlier this week.
