The 2017 harvest across the board is of exceptional quality with vibrant fruit and fantastic mouthfeel. This harvest - my 20th - started on 31 January and the last of the Sauvignon was harvested by 18 February. The winemaker enjoyed every single moment and knew it will reflect in this wine.

The grapes for this Premium Sauvignon Blanc were all hand-picked 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 19 vintages. To add complexity, musts and finished wines were kept in contact with their lees by stirring at least once daily.

Food pairing

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