Tasting notes:
'Heavyweight, fruit-centric. Isn’t quite as rewarding as the 2005. Tannins are more drying and less lustrous.' – Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20

'Mature, but still has some heft, with loamy tannins driving cedar, coffee, black currant and bittersweet cocoa notes. A solid example of the style. I don't think cellaring will tame this brawny red any further.' – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 88/100

'Cassis, herbs, char and a touch of green pepper create an interesting bouquet, while the palate is supple, creamy and delivers nice cassis and forest-floor flavors. A finely made wine in a classic Bordeaux style.' – Wine Enthusiast, 88/100

Alc: 14.5% | RS: 2.7 g/L | TA: 6.3 g/L | PH: 3.63

About Vergelegen:

The 3,000 hectare estate is situated in one of the richest floral regions of the world and they practice sustainable farming and have various environmental projects.
