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

Merlot [reserve] 2014

Ripe plum colour with a ruby rim.  The nose shows ripe fruit flavours, black cherries, plum, spice and a touch of chocolate.  The ripeness of the fruit is balanced by fresh fruit acidity with soft wood and fruit tannins.  The aftertaste is long and lasting.

The 2014 Merlot is the first full bottling with Michel Rolland on board.  The wine is a real departure from the Vergelegen style up to now and is fresh and ripe with beautiful soft tannins.
