Yields were ridiculously low in 2020, but Henk Laing's field blend of Semillon Blanc and Semillon Gris always seems to cope with what the vintage throws at it. Exotic, perfumed and intense, with nectarine and passion fruit flavours, old vine concentration, subtle tannins and an undertow of acidity. 2023-28 (Tim Atkin) ... More details

Rated 94 by Wine Advocate
A pale gold color in the glass, the 2020 Old Vine Series Kokerboom is clean and citrus-driven and offers up aromas of lanolin wax and sea spray. The wine possesses a delightful action in the mouth. The piercing citrus tones effortlessly glide across the palate with a mineral-driven backbone that intensifies over the somersaulting, winding and long finish. Bravo!

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

With its hot, long summers and oceanic winds from both the west and the east, South Africa is something of a haven for a wide range of imported grape varietals. Since the mid-18th century, the country has been associated with some very fine wines made using complex and careful blending techniques, with one of the most famous and widely loved early examples being constructed from Pontac, Muscadel and Chenin Blanc varietals. Since those colonial days, the regions around Cape Town have proven again and again to be fantastic areas for producing interesting and delicious wines, with many of the best examples of Champagne style sparkling wines originating from these fertile lands. From the scorchingly hot regions of Orange Rivers, to the far cooler and temperate appellations in Walker Bay, South Africa has developed a booming wine industry responsible for many of the finest New World wines available anywhere across the globe.
