in the vineyard : The grapes for this premium Sauvignon Blanc were all from Vergelegen’s own vineyards.

about the harvest: 2015 was the earliest vintage in nearly 30 years and all harvesting was finished before the Easter weekend which was also a first! Great quality and set to become a stand-out vintage. Harvesting of the Sauvignon Blanc grapes started on 5 February and finished on 25 February.

in the cellar : Grapes from the selected vineyards were hand harvested at peak ripeness and transported to the Cellar. Parcels were selected and these parcels could be individual rows or fractions of blocks. Everything was vinified separately. No chemical or enzymatic additions were made and we tried to depart from everything that was accepted as protocols over the previous 16 years. Musts and finished wines were kept in contact with their lees by stirring at least once daily.
