Vergelegen Reserve Semillon 2021

R350.00

Attractive light green colour. The nose shows delicate citrus, white flowers, honey and spice. The wine is finely focused, complex and well balanced with a crisp acidity.

Excellent with mussel soup, salmon, grilled yellowtail, Thai green curries and smoked chicken salad. Stunning with seared tuna and scallops. Do not hesitate to try it with risotto, match made in heaven!

ORIGIN

The Semillon came from Korhaan 10/11 blocks. The Korhaan 10 was planted in 2003 and 11 in 1993.

 

VINIFICATION

The grapes were picked on 28th February 2020. No crushing or de-stemming was allowed, but the grapes were rather whole bunch pressed for best quality juice. Fermentation took place in 225-liter French oak barrels. The wine was matured in barrel for nine months with regular lees stirrings.
