About the Wine

Franschhoek has, for more than a century, been known as one the country’s foremost regions for growing the illusive Semillon grape. Pound of Flesh is a fresh take on Franschhoek’s oldest grape variety. Hailing from the Bo-Hoek and grown from Franschhoek’s lowest-yielding commercial block of Semillon, the grapes were harvested at a low potential alcohol, cooled and then crushed to extract aromatic phenolics from the skins. Cold-settled and then racked quickly, the juice was fermented in stainless steel at a high turbidity to create richness, texture, flesh.
