VERGELEGEN V (2015)
One of the great ‘icon’ red wines from South Africa. A 100% Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot blend. The nose is complex, showing blackcurrants, red cherries, cedar wood, graphite and cigar box aromas. These develop in the glass and are joined by raspberry, black cherry, spice and a hint of gaminess. On the palate the wine is concentrated but elegant, with fine-grained tannins. These tannins soften even further in the glass, resulting in a luxurious wine with a long aftertaste.
Enjoy with almost any red meat, especially served rare to medium rare.A beautifully marbled steak, slow braised beef or venison are always going to be firm flavor match’s with this extraordinary wine!
Composition: Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 80% Merlot 10% Cabernet Franc 10%
Can be enjoyed on release and will ‘cellar’ for the next 20+ years.
VERGELEGEN GVB RED (2015)
Composition: Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 78% Merlot 11% Cabernet Franc 11%
Enjoy on release and over the 10-15 years.
VERGELEGEN GVB WHITE (2019)
Using the classic varietals of Vergelegen Estate, Sémillon, and Sauvignon Blanc this wine is pale yellow-green color with a nose reminiscent of freshly squeezed lime juice. On the palate its tight, focused and beautifully integrated with herbal (fynbos), grapefruit flavors, ripe tropical notes, and a long, focused aftertaste. Probably one of our best vintages ever and without a doubt one of the great white wines of the world. Total production amounts to 2643 standard bottles. Stock piling is recommended!!
Most enjoyable with oysters, lobster, chicken, and fish dishes.
Composition: Estate Sémillon 34% Sauvignon Blanc 66%
Enjoy on release over the next 5-7 years.
VERGELEGEN CHARDONNAY RESERVE (2019)
The wine shows an attractive lemony yellow-green color with a complex nose of citrus, white peach, pineapple, spice, citrus blossoms, apricot and buttered toast aromas. The taste is long and elegant with a lively minerality.
The laser-bright acidity means you can drink it on its own, or pair it with grilled shrimp, scallops, crab gratin – or chicken (anything from roast to salads) or cheesy/creamy/lemony pasta dishes.
Composition: 100 % Estate Chardonnay.
Enjoy on release and over the next 5-7 years.
VERGELEGEN MMV BRUT (2016)
You will enjoy a lovely fine mousse with a hint of toast, citrus, spice and baked apples. Long, lingering and refreshing aftertaste.
The MMV Brut pairs really well with oysters, shellfish, crab, lobster
Composition: 100% Estate Chardonnay
Enjoy now or over the next 5-10 years.
