Situated on the Schaapenberg Mountains, Vergelegen dates back 300 years. Anglo America purchased the property in 1987 and invested extensively in the estate before André van Rensburg arrived in 1998. Having produced fine, modern wines for two decades, Vergelegen is one of South Africa’s top producers. Only the Rondekop vineyards were used for the production of this ‘Great Vergelegen Blend’.
‘75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc; all aged in 100% new French oak for two years. Knockout nose combines cassis, black raspberry, mocha and cedar. Plush, super concentrated, broad and sweet; an utterly silky, seamless wine with outstanding depth of texture. Finishes with huge but utterly suave tannins and superb length.’ Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com, 92/100
