Lot 265

Vergelegen
Estate, 1998
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Situated on the Schaapenberg Mountains 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 far away’, the actual translation of Vergelegen, AngloAmerica purchased the property in 1987 and have 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 top producers. This 1998 won the prestigious Comtesse Lalande trophy for best blended red wine in the world at the International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC)!

'(a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc) Full, deep red. Aromas of blackcurrant and tobacco, complicated by a gamey element. Lush, sweet and pliant, with a wonderfully velvety texture and a complicating note of tobacco leaf. Finishes very long and sweet, with suave tannins and notes of currant, smoke and tobacco.' – Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com, 92/100 (2003)
