A superb Sauvignon/Semillon blend from Stellenbosch.
This 60% Sauvignon Blanc 40% Semillon white Bordeaux blend is the flagship white of the highly regarded Stellenbosch based Vergelegen Estate. Both the Sauvignon and Semillon come from 20yr old vineyards, were hand-picked, whole bunch pressed, barrel fermented with the Sauvignon maturing in old large oak barrels and 25% of the Semillon in new Burgundy oak for 9 months. This wine has then spent two and half years in bottle before release.
Pale green in colour with lime and mineral aromas leading onto a full, rich and complex palate. Lovely stone fruit flavours backed up a creamy body with touches of spice and a very long length.
An indulgent wine that works really well with shellfish and white fish and poultry.Suitable for Vegans
