Description

Gabrielskloof Landscape Series Magdalena

“Magdalena is our uniquely South African take on a white Bordeaux style blend, combining Sémillon from Franschhoek and Sauvignon Blanc from Gabriëlskloof.”

The Landscape Series is a range of five wines that show the best of Gabriëlskloof’s vineyards and winemaking. It aims to be a sincere representation of the elements that make them unique. The labels feature landscape paintings by Niël Jonker that reflect and capture the spirit of Overberg landscapes.

A blend of 41% Sémillon and 59% Sauvignon Blanc. The Sémillon sourced from low-yielding 34-year-old vines in Franschhoek give it a textural dimension that wines made from younger vines lack. The Sauvignon Blanc is from Gabriëlskloof’s 13-year-old vines situated on south-facing slopes. Whole bunch pressed before natural fermentation and ageing in 400 and 500L old French oak barrels. The wine then spent 10 months on the lees before blending and bottling.

Pale golden straw hue. Prominent blackcurrant with flinty aromas on the nose, rounding off with zesty citrus, orange blossom and slight praline flavours. Thanks to time spent on lees, this full and round palate is well-integrated and textural. Delicious to drink now and into 2022.
