Winemaker's Notes

Vergelegen was named "2006 New World Winery of the Year" by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.

This Merlot/Cabernet blend has an attractive dark ruby color. Ripe berry, plum, chocolate and coffee on the nose. Hints of mint, spice and pencil shavings on the palate. Fine grained tannins with great fruit-wood integration. Note: In 2002 Vergelegen did not release a Cabernet Sauvignon or a Merlot resulting in a more concentrated Mill Race with longer barrel aging – 18 months in 75% new oak. Ideal with pasta, pizza, stews and premium red meat cuts.

Blend: 60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon

This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...
