VERGELEGEN SEMILLON STRAW WINE 2018 14.5% 37.5CL
Tasting Notes Ripe, tropical fruit abounds on the nose but the wine does not become dull and uninteresting due to marvellous acidity and freshness on the palate. Serve well chilled at 8-10 degrees Centigrade. Do not serve with chocolate in any form! Origin The grapes were all selected from Vergelegen’s Korhaan and Niel-Suid vineyards Vinification Grapes were either dried on the vines or on wooden pallets. Processing started the moment sufficient sugar concentration developed. The grapes were not crushed or de-stemmed but fermented on the skins in plastic bins. This helped to break down cell tissue and released slightly higher quantities of juice. The fermenting sweet juice was transferred to old barrels for completion of alcoholic fermentation. The wine spent 13 months in old oak and was bottled on 18 August 2014. Composition Sauvignon Blanc - 50 % / Semillon - 50 % Maturation Wonderful now but will improve over next 15-20 years in bottle
