Grape Variety

Sauvignon Blanc

Vinification Details

The grapes were picked as soon as the desired flavours were showing at optimum. There was no skin contact and most of the grapes were pressed in the new Bucher Inertys Press that reduces oxygen uptake, resulting in fresher, fruitier wines. Fermentation occurred at higher temperatures than is the norm in South Africa, resulting in distinctively fuller, bigger, more intensely flavoured wines.

History

Vergelegen, meaning "situated far away", was granted to the Governor of the Cape in 1700 and the property has had a long and fascinating history since that time. During its long history Vergelegen has developed a unique culture. It is embodied in physical properties, in its people and in the more aesthetic traditions handed down over the last 300 years.

Regional Information

Somerset West, Stellenbosch, has a close proximity to False Bay. The prevailing coastal winds from the bay provide cool evening temperatures that ensure a longer ripening period. The winery dates back to the 1700s. Located in Stellenbosch, a premium wine growing region.
