Dornier Semillon secures TOP 10

Dornier Semillon secures Top 10 in 2023 Prescient Minority Report

Dornier is well known for the production of single varietal wines made from “niche” varieties such as Semillon, Tinta Barcocca, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Tempranillo the majority of which have to date been ranked in the Top 10 of the Prescient Minority Report. Dornier Semillon is produced from grapes harvested from a small block of vines, 1.46ha, that were planted in 1997. The vines are low yielding at 7.5 tons per hectare and provide for approximately 3000 bottles of Semillon each year.

The nose of Dornier Semillon shows complex and upfront aromas of lemon rind, fresh hay, caramelised apple and honey. The palate is rich in flavours of quince, lemon meringue and brioche. A luscious full texture backed by a well-balanced acidity and a long lingering finish.

Only a few hundred bottles of the 2021 vintage remain in stock. Congratulations to Winemaker Philip van Staden for the stellar wines he produces at Dornier.

Dornier Semillon is available to taste and purchase at the Wine Lounge at Dornier.
