2018 Vintage

THE GOOD GUYS MUSE

“The name comes from a line in an old Western movie, Tombstone. The phrase signifies acceptance of a challenge, saying I’m the one you’re looking for, I’m game, I’m it. It’s basically a conversation between Sémillon and myself for our maiden vintage, saying ‘let’s go for it’.” – Jolette Steyn

The Vineyard Party is a new project, now launching with two small – batch Sémillon bottlings from the maiden 2018 vintage. The goal here is to source biodiverse, sustainably farmed vineyard parcels, whilst working with avant-garde vinification techniques, and applying low intervention in the cellar.

TASTING NOTES

Full yellow in colour. This has brightness and freshness, and also a bit of structure. There is a lovely chalky, green limey character here, with crystalline citrus fruit, a hint of green apple and peach plus some waxy, earthy notes.

Lovely freshness and presence on the palate with good acidity and a fine, spicy, nicely green twist on the finish that is long and very savoury. It’s fresh but textural with lots of detail and interest. This is a lovely expression of Semillon.

Whole-bunch pressed juice fermented in older barrels (70%) with a portion skin contact fermented in open top tanks (30%) for about 15 days. No additions apart from SO2.
