Additional Information on Alheit Vineyards Semillon Arrow Heart 2014

Winery: Alheit Vineyards

Varietal: Semillon

The Semillon varietal grape has been planted and cultivated in several countries throughout Europe and the New World for a considerable length of time, and was at one point thought to be the most widely planted grape in the world. Indeed, for a period in the 19th century, it made up for over ninety percent of South Africa's wine industry, and was equally prodigious in Australia and elsewhere. Today, its number may have dropped, but it remains and strong and popular grape varietal, loved by wineries for the fact it is hardy and reliable. The golden colored grapes of the Semillon vine are possibly most appreciated when made into various French wines, where they are often aged in oak, a wood it has a particular affinity for.

Country: South Africa

Situated on the very tip of the African continent, South Africa has proved itself over three centuries to be an ideal location for producing a wide range of wines. Benefiting from something not dissimilar to a Mediterranean climate, with long, hot summers complemented by both Atlantic and Indian Ocean winds, the grapes which grow on the valleys, mountainsides and plains of this fascinating country can ripen to their fullest capacity, producing wines packed full of fruity flavors and an array of interesting and enticing aromas. As a former colony, South Africa has long since been home to a range of different nationalities, who each brought something of their wine culture with them. As such, many European grape varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling and others have been given time to flourish in South Africa, allowing the country to develop a diverse group of wine types which are proving increasingly popular around the world.
