2021 Vergelegen, Semillon Straw Wine, Stellenbosch
The nose is filled with abundant, ripe tropical fruit aromas, yet the wine maintains its vibrancy and allure thanks to its remarkable acidity and refreshing palate. To fully appreciate its qualities, it's recommended to serve this wine well chilled, at a temperature between 8 to 10 degrees Celsius.The grapes for this wine were carefully harvested, with some left to dry on the vines or wooden pallets until they reached the desired sugar concentration. These grapes were then processed, without crushing or de-stemming, and fermented with their skins in plastic bins. This unique approach helped break down cell tissue and extract slightly higher quantities of juice. The resulting sweet juice was subsequently transferred to old barrels to complete the alcoholic fermentation process. The wine was then aged for a period of 15 months in old oak barrels.COMPOSITION: This wine is crafted exclusively from 100% Semillon grapes.MATURATION: While this wine is delightful to enj
