Zorgvliet Simoné Sauvignon Semillon 2018

South Africa / Stellenbosch

Andy's Tasting Notes

White wine for heroes! Unapologetically rich and complex with a plethora of flavours – abundantly creamy and waxy with tropical fruit, vanilla and roasted nuts.  An intriguing contrast of zingy lemon fruit also puts in an appearance.  Considering all its myriad parts they all dovetail together impeccably.

Give this plenty of breathing time to develop in the glass, and don’t over-chill it!

57% Sauvignon Blanc, 43% Semillon

Owners Stephan and Izelle van de Merwe have proudly named their two Grand Cuvee wines after their daughters, Simoné and Richelle. Both wines are key to the winery’s philosophy of ‘Elegance in wine’ and this white Bordeaux varietal blend is a mountain powerhouse to be savoured.

This is a small 200,000-bottle winery in Banghoek, on the Helshoogte Pass between Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. It’s pronounced ‘Sorg-fleet’, which roughly translates to ‘no worries’, and that sentiment carries itself through all they do.

Winemaker Bernard Le Roux is a young and upcoming talent who is passionate about the estate’s vineyards as well as its cellar (not always a given for winemakers!). Grapes are grown on the steep slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain in vineyards that are among the highest in Stellenbosch. The estate wines are from site-specific single vineyards and are elegant expressions of this unique mountain terroir, all crafted in the Zorgvliet cellar, one of the most technologically advanced cellars in South Africa.
