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 2019:
"Semillon’s smooth silkiness sets the pace, 42% sauvignon adds focus & drive on 2017. Elegantly harmonious, waxy lemon flavours seamlessly interlinked with cool blackcurrant & extended on zestily dry tail. Natural ferment, older oak. Semillon ex Franschhoek." 93pts
