The Semillon is planted on Nabank/Shale soil and the Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from one of our vineyards planted on Table Mountain sandstone.
Vrede en Lust has been producing the Barrique since 2009. This versatile blend showcases the synergy between Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc with the complexity of Semillon coming through as it ages. The 2014 vintage was awarded a double gold medal at the National Wine Challenge, 91 points at The Wine Magazine and also voted as elegant & classy at the 2016 Sommeliers Selection.
Barrique 2017 received a Double Gold Award from the 2019 National Wine Challenge. At the 2020 Nation Wine Challenge the Barriquw 2018 received the Double Gold Award.
A rich and complex wine with earthy and quince characteristics, elegantly balanced with lingering mineral notes. A classic blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc makes this wine the perfect food partner. We suggest seared tuna or sashimi.
