*Please note - the image may not reflect the current vintage
Vergelegen Cabernet Sauvignon - Merlot is 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. Vergelegen (meaning “situated far away”) has over 300 years of history, but their philosophy is simple: "There must be harmony between the old and the new."
At Vergelegen all grapes are handpicked followed by storage in a refrigerated container at -20°C for 48 hours. The cool grapes (8-10°C) are then carefully sorted on combinations of vibrating tables and slow moving conveyors, where between 1,5-3 tons are sorted per hour. The grapes are de-stemmed but not crushed and the grapes/must cold soaked for 7 days followed by a feral fermentation lasting 4 days, after which cultured yeast was added and fermented until dry. The young red wine was then macerated on the skins for a further 6-7 weeks before going into barrel for 18 months (20% new) and finally bottled in early December 2014. Released September 2019.
