About this Item

GVB Red, 2011
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.
Only the Rondekop vineyards were used for the production of this ‘Great Vergelegen Blend’.

Critics Ratings

‘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
