Vergelegen Reserve Merlot 2013 75cl 14.5% ABV

Sold out
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. "Comparatively serious for a Cape Merlot - the result of the longer maceration advised by consultant Michel Rolland perhaps - this is ripe and plush, with 40% new wood, notes of camphor and fruit cake and a smooth, supple finish. 2019-24."
