Vergelegen's winemaking philosophy is simple :

There must be harmony between the old and the new.

Merlot [reserve] 2015

Merlot [reserve] 2015

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 2015 Merlot Reserve is the second Merlot to be produced in co-operation with the Master from Pomerol, Michel Rolland.  The wine is drinking extremely well on release and will most definitely improve over the next decade and beyond, depending on storage conditions.  Serve decanted with your favourite red meat - I would recommend lamb cutlets or a fillet steak.
