The Landscape Series is a range of five wines that show the best of Gabriëlskloof’s vineyards and winemaking and aims to be a sincere representation of the elements that make them unique. We wanted the labels to reflect this approach and commissioned Niël Jonker – well-known for his landscape panels painted on location – to capture the spirit of our Overberg landscapes.
Magdalena is our uniquely South African take on a white Bordeaux style blend, combining Sémillon from Franschhoek and Sauvignon Blanc from Gabriëlskloof.
Angela Lloyd's Tasting note in Platter 2021:
"Semillon-led 2018, variety’s rich texture braced by just 15% Elgin sauvignon. Still sombre, closed in youth but has concentration, excellent structure, grip to blossom with time, which semillon needs. Larger French oak, all older, adds dimension." 93pts
