Tin Soldier is a skin-fermented wine made from Semillon gris, which is almost unique to South Africa, and a time when Semillon was the grape on which the South African wine industry was built. The vineyard has been established from a selection of Semillon Gris cuttings taken from an adjacent vineyard of Semillon that was planted in 1964.
This wine has an expressive nose with spice, sweet papaya, ginger, citrus peel, buttered toast and marzipan aromas. The palate is finely structured, with fresh acidity and full flavours of cape gooseberries, sesame seeds and Oolong tea. It is dry and delicate, while at the same time showing a core of richness and depth. The interplay between savoury and sweet is a key point of interest in Tin Soldier, and makes for a subtle and engaging wine.
