6 (1 x 6) 750ml

 View a Condition Report



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. The flagship V is a Cabernet Sauvignon carefully selected from their Stonepine and Rondekop vineyards. 2003 was a powerful vintage and is now reaching maturity.

 

‘More impressive, enormous & dramatic than lovely in its tight-sprung youth: need yrs still for the concentrated sweet fruit to come out of its sombrely tannic, oak-dominated shell – but already vibrant, deep & long. Elegance is quite beside the point here ...’  Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2006, 4.5*
