The Vergelegen Sémillon Reserve 2018 was named Best Niche White Variety in the Winemag Prescient Top 20 Wines South Africa 2020 Report.

Tasting notes:
'Fermented and matured for eighth months in 225-litre barrels, 35% new. Floral perfume, hay and some attractive herbal character before citrus and peach on the nose. The palate has wonderfully pure fruit with bright acidity, while there is some peppery bite to the finish. Precisely made, this has lovely energy and balance.' – Winemag Prescient Top 20 Wines South Africa 2020, 93/100

'Unusually fragrant 2018 off 30 year old vineyard largely destroyed in 2017 fires. Dusty lemon & lanolin aromas open up gorgeously with aeration. Lightly rich, with brilliant lemony acidity in fine balance. Supportive oak, 35% new. Needs time to show at its best - decant in youth.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

Alc: 13.5% | RS: 3.01 g/L | TA: 6.27 g/L | PH: 3.1

About Vergelegen:

Vergelegen (meaning ‘situated far away’), has changed through many owners since then, each of whom have shaped Vergelegen into what it is today. The 3,000 hectare estate is situated in one of the richest floral regions of the world and they practice sustainable farming and have various environmental projects.
