Waitrose Wine List 2009

Deetlefs Familie Semillon 2006
Extract:
“A really fine Semillon with pure, concentrated lemon and peach flavours and beautiful balancing acidity. Delicious now, this can be cellared for at least five to seven years during which time it will develop a wonderful toasty richness. Partners brilliantly with Thai green curry. Very limited availability.”


Decanter Magazine – Ten best wines from Waitrose (June 2009)

Deetlefs Familie Semillon 2006
Extract
: “This South African white is very expressive on the nose with notes of fresh ripe white fruits and creamy oak characters. The palate is rich and has the weight to support the ripe fruit intensity and the complexity. Lots of layers but it's all supported by a natural acidity. To enjoy with food.
