Vinification Details

  • The grapes were hand harvested from selected vineyards. Parcels were selected and these parcels could be individual rows or fractions of blocks and everything was vinified separately. No chemical or enzymatic additions were made and we re-examined and reviewed everything that was accepted as protocols over the previous vintages. To add complexity, musts and finished wines were kept in contact with their lees by stirring at least once daily.

History

  • Founded on 1 February 1700, Vergelegen (meaning "situated far away"), has been under the ownership of some of the world's great explorers and visionaries, each of whom, in their own way, have helped shape Vergelegen to what it is today: a world-class Estate.

Regional Information

  • Situated in one of the richest floral regions of the world, the Vergelegen estate is home to some of the Cape's most pristine natural flora and fauna. The importance and scale of the conservation project undertaken at Vergelegen is shown by the fact that it is considered the biggest private environmental project of its kind in South Africa.

Lush Passion Fruit

5 stars

I love this wine! It's so fresh and tastes like elderflower and passion fruit. I normally always buy New Zeland Sauvignon Blanc's but after tasting this wine, I will be looking South Africa more. Perfect with the roast chicken, but it is also enjoyable on its own with no food. Highly reccomend.

Very oaky

3 stars

Review from tesco.com

Wine was much more oaky than I remember & tasted more like a Chardonnay than a Sauvignon blanc. Although it is a South African wine, I thought it would be similar to a NZ wine.
