Vergelegen, GVB Red 750ml 2013South Africa, Stellenbosch
'“Grand Vin de Bordeaux”, jokes André van Rensburg about the acronym of this wine. Combining mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot and Cabernet Franc, all aged in 100% new wood, it wouldn’t look out of place in the Médoc, with leafy, graphite-like aromas and fine tannins. Drink 2018-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2018, 94/100
'Cab leads merlot with splashes cab franc & petit verdot in 2013, showing its dominant role with earthy blackcurrants, iodine & liquorice. Big, serious & forceful but not intimidating, showing integration from 4 years in bottle.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)
'Quite a complex nose. Round and juicy. Quite transparent and pretty. Dry finish with some sweetness. Flattering.' – Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, 16.5/20
Alc: 14.5% | RS: 2.94 g/L | TA: 5.6 g/L | PH: 3.61
