One of 2017's "Young Guns of Wine" in South Africa, Callan Williams hails from Zimbabwe but moved south when a young girl. Once on the verge of becoming a ballet dancer, she changed tack quite dramatically and went into wine.
Jim Semillon is from the Elgin Valley, one of the coolest wine regions in South Africa. The vineyard is 200 metres above sea level, and benefits from cooler air off the nearby Atlantic ocean. Half-and-half fermented in steel and French oak, it's a very intense, bright Semillon, really jumping out the glass at you - yet the overall impression is super fresh with seriously quenching acidity alongside a smooth, mouth-filling texture. Grassy, then tropical fruit and an umami note.
Quite brilliant, and already named one of the top 20 Semillons in South Africa by commentator Higgo Jacobs. Just 3,000 bottles made.
