The palate is loaded with stone fruit, marzipan and almonds which is surrounded with a waxy creaminess. Medium pallet with weight in the front. Terroir driven wines to be enjoyed with a beautiful rebel on your side.

|Other||A bird in the hand is worth more than two in the bush. In times like this we must appreciate what we have because sometimes the best is closer to home than what you realize. This gem of a vineyard is planted in 1997 and was rediscovered on the family estate recently. By changing vineyard practices and winemaking techniques this unique wine was born. Search for the beauty rather than criticize the shortfalls.|
|FoodSuggest||Being a rich and elegant wine, it will pair beautifully with heavier fish, shellfish, chicken and veal with buttery, creamy and savoury sauces. A Bird in the hand Semillon goes with mild cheddar, Smoked Gouda or a ripe Camembert with green figs is a fantastic match.|
