Tasting notes:
'Understated, subtly complex 2016 has finely detailed citrus, showing zest, marmalade & blossom notes. Also-tasted 2017 follows form, less butter & oak spice emphasis. Both elegantly weighted, with lingering finish. Bunch pressed, barrel fermented, matured 9 months.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'Vergelegen's Reserve bottling is a single vineyard wine, made from a block planted with five different clones at 150 metres and aged in 25% new wood. It's a rich, textured style that needs a little more time in bottle, showing toasty, vanilla and citrus fruit flavours. Drink 2020-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 92/100

'The wine shows an attractive lemony yellow-green colour with a complex nose of citrus, white peach, pineapple, spice, citrus blossoms, apricot and buttered toast aromas. The taste is long and elegant with a lively minerality.' – Winemaker

Alc: 14.5% | RS: 1.58 g/L | TA: 6.05 g/L | PH: 3.4
