Vergelegen Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

£16.95 incl. VAT

8 in stock

Vergelegen Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 is a complex red wine, blackcurrants, spice, ripe plums and attractive wood aromas and flavours. It is full and rich with prominent tannins that bodes well for future ageing.

Cabernet Sauvignon 86%
Merlot 10%
Cabernet Franc 4%

A total of 25 350 bottles were produced. 2014 was the first
of a quartet of hot and dry vintages, but the winter of 2013
was one of the wettest on record with 1128 mm of rain. This
included a monstrous 250 mm in a 36 hour downpour! We
started harvesting the Cabernet Sauvignon on 31 March and
finished on 14 April 2014.
ORIGIN
The grapes were selected from Vergelegen’s Rooiland and
Stonepine vineyards. These vineyards are all north to
northwest facing, with granite, Hutton and Clovelly soils.
Vines were planted 4000 to the hectare.
VINIFICATION
The Cabernet was fermented in open and closed tanks at high
temperatures (28-32°C) and pumped over every 6 hours to
maximize colour and tannin extraction. The wine spent 16
months in barrel; 40% new oak from coopers Taransaud,
Darnajou and Sylvain. The wine was bottled on 4 December
2015.
