The Vergelegen Merlot Reserve 2015 was named Best Merlot in the Winemag Prescient Top 20 Wines South Africa 2020 Report.

'The 2015 Merlot Reserve is the second Merlot to be produced in co-operation with the Master from Pomerol, Michel Rolland. The wine is drinking extremely well on release and will most definitely improve over the next decade and beyond, depending on storage conditions.' – Vergelegen

Tasting notes:
'Matured for 16 months in French oak, 50% new. Red and black berries, fresh herbs and earth on the nose while the palate has great fruit weight, an invigorating line of acidity and fine tannins. Elegant and detailed.' – Winemag Prescient Top 20 Wines South Africa 2020 Report, 93/100

'Ripe plum colour with a ruby rim. The nose shows ripe fruit flavours, black cherries, plum, spice and a touch of chocolate. The ripeness of the fruit is balanced by fresh fruit acidity with soft wood and fruit tannins. The aftertaste is long and lasting.' – Winemaker

Alc: 14.6% | RS: 2.5 g/L | TA: 6.3 g/L | PH: 3.42
