About this Item

V, 2005
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
With a history dating back over 300 years, Vergelegen has kept a simple winemaking philosophy this entire time, ‘there must be harmony between the old and the new’. Situated on the Schaapenberg in Somerset West, overlooking False Bay, Anglo America purchased the property in 1987 and have since invested extensively in the estate’s viticulture and historic core. Having produced fine, modern wines for two decades, Vergelegen is one of South Africa’s highest regarded, established producers. Andre Van Rensburg, previously with Stellenzicht, has been at the helm of this oldest of Stellenbosch wine concerns since 1998, with advice from none other than world-renowned oenologist Michel Rolland.
The flagship V is a Cabernet Sauvignon carefully selected from their Stonepine and Rondekop vineyards.

Critics Ratings

'Some lovely earthiness here. Black fruit, liquorice, quite dense and structural – more backward than the 2007. Smoky, charred character. Flawless fruit.’  - Richard Hemming MW, 17.5/20
