Product Notes

Vergelegen Estate Premium Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot is a remarkable South African wine, known for its rich bouquet of aromas and an elegant finish. This blend exhibits opulent flavours of red and black fruits, leather, and ripe plum, seamlessly merging with supple tannins and subtleties of oak. Its deep ruby colour and velvety texture further add to its appeal. Matured in French oak barrels, it embodies a balanced, full-bodied palate with a delightful complexity. This wine is a perfect choice for those who appreciate robust red wines, pairing splendidly with hearty meals, making each sip a luxurious experience.

Tasting Notes

Bright dark red. On the nose striking cassis underlined with cedar and a fresh ripe fruit character. On the palate the freshness carries through with a sprightly lingering finish.

Intricately tied to the local terroir, these wines are reflective of the estate's deep-rooted respect for the land. The lush vineyards, stretched over 3,000 hectares, strive to produce the finest Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay grapes which are then masterfully transformed into their emblematic wines.

The estate's restaurant, renowned as one of the leading dining destinations in South Africa, impresses with mouthwatering seasonal dishes. Their use of locally sourced ingredients is a testament to the Vergelegen philosophy, which values sustainability and revels in the beauty of its home province.

Other exceptional highlights of this distinguished estate include a library boasting volumes of rare books, the Camphor Forest a proclaimed provincial heritage site, and the gardens that contain 18 well-known and beautifully-maintained varieties. This all adds to a breathtakingly tranquil atmosphere, ideal for a leisurely afternoon visit.
