Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2008 - Vergelegen : Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2008 - Weißwein von VergelegenIn diesem Fall bedeutet Reserve nicht die Reife im Holzfass, sondern eine längere Lagerung auf der Hefe, um mehr und komplexere Aromen zu erhalten. Der Wein leuchtet im Glas intensiv gelb. Die Nase wird von einem fruchtigen Bukett aus Stachelbeeren, grünen Feigen, Guave und etwas grünem Paprika erfreut. Die Frucht harmoniert wunderbar mit einer feinen mineralischen Note, die an Feuerstein erinnert. Der Mund wird voll ausgefüllt und von der kraftvollen und eleganten Struktur verwöhnt. Die mineralische Note ist auffallend und verbindet sich wieder mit den fein-fruchtigen Aromen aus der Nase. Ein weicher Schmelz legt sich an den Gaumen. Voll, cremig und lang anhaltend präsentiert sich das Finale dieses enorm komplexen Weines.Dieser ausgewogene Wein passt perfekt zu Austern, Meeresfrüchte-Risotto und zu Frischkäse.

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes came for a 2,5ha Vergelegen vineyard exactly 6,5km from the Atlantic Ocean on the south-facing slopes of windswept Schaapenberg hill. The uniqueness of this site combines elevation, aspect, proximity to the ocean and soils of decomposed granite with a clay sub-structure. The vines are not irrigated and the wine reflects its terroir and the conditions of each vintage. After destemming and crushing the juice is left on the skins for just 18 hours at 8 °C. This was followed by a light pressing and the juice was allowed to settle at low temperatures for 8 days. The “clean” juice was then fermented for 21 days at 14°C.The young wine was left on the coarse lees for 7 months and stirred weekly. The wine shows a rich array of varietal green fig, gooseberry, guava, cut grass and passion fruit aromas and flavours over a core that is flinty and minerally. This is a full-flavoured wine with a long aftertaste.
