About This Wine:
Lesser known but a hub of quality winemaking is Breedekloof, a diverse region that experiences abundant sunshine and the cooling influence of nearby mountain ranges. The Breedekloof Valley is known for its slow-ripening vines and farming families with a long tradition, some reaching back longer than three centuries.
Situated just over an hour’s drive from Cape Town, Breedekloof offers expansive and dramatic mountain views. West of the Breede River Valley, its surrounding mountain ranges and the meandering Breede River contribute to the varied terroir of the region. Today, the Breedekloof Wine Route includes 22 wineries in the Rawsonville, Slanghoek, Goudini and Breede River areas, ranging from small boutique cellars to large estates.
Semillon is the specialty of the house at Amafu. Light, bright and fresh on the palate, the 2020 vintage makes an engaging aperitif or a wonderful companion to food. Honey-glazed ham, anyone?
