Why Semillon?

Semillon has played a hugely important role in defining Franschhoek’s wine heritage and personality. With some of the oldest vines in the country being bush-vine Semillon from Franschhoek, planted way back in 1905.

A hugely versatile grape, Semillon allows expression of place in many shapes and forms. The winemaking style in the case of the GD1 Project, is a wine that is focused and linear in its youth, while the truly exceptional personality of the wine will be revealed after many years of bottle-maturation.
