Vergelegen's winemaking philosophy is simple :

There must be harmony between the old and the new.

Shiraz [premium] 2016

Shiraz [premium] 2016

Dark ruby with violets, spice, chocolate, peat/smoke and black berry fruit on the nose. The palate shows a balanced acidity, with rich tannins and a long clean fruit dominated aftertaste.

The 2016 is an Estate wine, produced from own grapes only. 2016 was an extremely difficult year.  Normally the cool, wet years are the difficult ones but 2016 was the third year in a row with below long term average rainfall.  After careful maturation we decided, at the blending stage, to include 15% Shiraz fof the 2017 vintage for structure and flavour.
