Lot 346

Vergelegen
Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, 2001
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 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. Then known as simply ‘Cabernet Sauvignon’, this 2001 vintage was awarded 5* by the 2004 Platter’s Guide and 19/20 from UK critic extraordinaire, Jancis Robinson.

01 among finest vintages: tons sweet supple fruit now, promising good things in bottle. 14.5% alc. All these finely crafted wines; good for decade-plus improvement. 2 years French oak, +-50% new – Platter’s SA Wine Guide (2004)

Very dark, still blueish. Savoury nose without a hint of the obvious sweetness that can dog simpler New World Cabernets. An appetising leafiness. Very fresh and youthful. But great build and energy. The wine has a beginning, middle and end and real lift.  Still quite a bit of fine tannin. Real appeal. Both opulent and lifted. [The cheapest wine by far! Not nearly as expensive as Vergelegen's V below, nor even than their Bordeaux blend. – Jancis Robinson 19/20 (2008)
