Vergelegen's winemaking philosophy is simple : There must be harmony between the old and the new.

Plum, chocolate, graphite and cassis and cedar wood on the nose,  on the palate the fruit, tannin and acidity marry perfectly to offer balance and complexity, supported by flavours of black cherry, black currants and refreshing minerals. 

2012 rates as one of the very best vintages on record and for me personally as good as 1998 and 2000.  The 2012 GVB was selected as the SA Champion Red Blend at the SA Young Wine Show of that year.  Harvesting started on 15 March and ended on 13 April 2012.  Total production amounted to 19,443 bottles.  Bottled  on 17 October 2013.  Release date:  January 2016.
