Professional Wine Reviews for Alheit Vineyards La Colline Vineyard 2017

Rated 94 by Wine Advocate
Under a wax seal, the 2017 La Colline Vineyard is slightly reductive, but once you get the glass spinning, the wine reveals oak aromas of toasted brioche and vanilla seamlessly integrated into the Semillon, along with a waxy pomaceous fruit. This is really thoughtful winemaking here. Flavors of apples and lemons are beautifully balanced by the oak treatment and subtle, fine minerality that combine to extend texture across the mid-palate. If you are a Burgundy lover and looking from something familiar yet different, check this out. It has a delicate yet structured finesse, with a complex power to the mouthfeel and is medium to full-bodied with a long, richly textured finish. Only 182 cases made.

Winery Alheit Vineyards

Country: South Africa

Perhaps the most famous and well respected of all the wine regions in South Africa is that of Constantia, which holds many of the oldest and most traditional wineries in the country. Here, the temperate climate receives the Atlantic winds which cool the vineyards, and the fertile soil allows the grapes to grow to full ripeness, resulting in highly flavorful wines which are enjoyed around the world. Whilst Sauvignon Blanc varietals make up the most widely exported wines of this region, the rest of the country produces a huge and impressive range of wines, made up from varietals native to many different European countries. From excellent Champagne style sparkling wines, to aromatic fortified examples, fruity reds and refreshing whites, South Africa continues to impress and surprise, with modern techniques and technologies leading the way and producing exceptional results.
