Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot Blend * 75cl * 14% ABV * Stellenbosch, South Africa
Vergelegen is one of South Africa's most serious wine producers, the site having a long vinous history. The current owners are Anglo American PLC who have developed the company into a widely-known, international brand. An attractive plum, mulberry and dark chocolate profile with secondary notes of woodsmoke and tobacco. Very supple and attractive with soft, small-grained tannins. The vivacious and thoroughly entertaining winemaker, Andre van Rensburg, popped into Taurus to show his range in mid-2018. This is near unbeatable in terms of value: serious South Africa Cabernet with bottle age that will drink nicely over the next five years? A total steal.
