Since 1700 and to this day, Vergelegen (meaning “situated far away”), has been crafted by some of the world’s great explorers and visionaries, who each in their own way have helped shape Vergelegen to what it is today: a world-class Estate. Award-winning winemaker Andre van Rensburg ensures that Vergelegen’s handcrafted wines reach the highest possible level of satisfaction.
The Semillon was planted in 1991 on the south facing Korhaan flats at 220m above sea level. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes used in this blend come from the 20-year old Schaapenberg vineyard. This single vineyard is planted some 320m above sea level and directly south facing.
Cultivars: 62% Semillon; 38% Sauvignon Blanc
Pale green color with full ripe Semillon flavours dominating. The wine is rich and complex with a long aftertaste. Serve at 12-14ºC. Most enjoyable with oysters, crayfish, poultry and fish.
