Vergelegen Wine Estate

Vergelegen Wine Estate was founded on 1 February 1700. Vergelegen which means "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. Vergelegen produces world renowned handcrafted wines which we are fortunate to be able to share with you.

Tasting Notes

Pale, bright, green-tinged yellow in appearance. Pure, vibrant aromas of lime blossom, gooseberry, ripe guava, fresh passion fruit, white pepper and quince. This wine shows amazing elegance, balancing perfect acidity with ripe fruit.

Food Matches

Enjoy chilled with fresh asparagus, grilled or baked fish and chicken kebabs.

Vinification

The grapes for this premium Sauvignon Blanc were all from Vergelegen's own vineyards. Grapes from the selected vineyards were hand harvested at peak ripeness and transported to the Vergelegen cellar in wooden bins. 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 18 vintages. To add complexity, musts and finished wines were kept in contact with their lees by stirring at least once daily. (Ref: Vergelegen)
