Vergelegen Semillon Reserve

Vergelegen Semillon Reserve

Ref: A131813

Attractive light green colour. Nose shows intense 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 and chicken. Stunning with seared tuna and scallops.

Lime & fennel, a hint of sage, 2013 shows striking purity & focus, the oak a gentle buttered toast shading, allowing the fruit to shine. Polished, svelte, admirable.

Tim Atkin
"There are only 3,000 bottles of this exciting wine, made every year at Vergelegen since 2011. It’s a lovely expression of the variety, all fresh herbs, lemon rind and pastry with a long, tangy, mineral finish. It ages well, too. Drink: 2015-20."
Score: 93/100

Boasting a proud history extending over 300 years, Vergelegen has carefully conserved the items of heritage that has formed the foundation of Cape Culture in South Africa, based on the layered historicism of links to the Netherlands, Far East, England and France.
Over the centuries, the owners of Vergelegen have contributed to the preservation of the unique facets of the Estate, ranging from the ancient Camphor trees, believed to have been planted by van der Stel in 1700, the "Royal Oak" grown from an acorn taken from Blenheim Palace in 1928, through to sensitively revamped hospitality facilities that blend seamlessly into the centuries old landscape.
