    This is the expression of everything that is great about South African wine. Like the South African rugby team, this wine has strong character that packs a punch and commands respect on the world stage.

    One of South Africa's premier wine estates, Vergelegen is committed to sustainable viticulture and environmental management. Grapes for 'The Red' are only grown in the Rondekop vineyard unirrigated vines. Matured in 100% new oak barrels for 24 months before release.

  • Taste

    Aromas of ripe cassis, spice, red berries, toasted oak, vanillin and hints of savoury leather on the nose, a structured body of tannins and acidity with layers of cassis fruit. A long, elegant finish.

    Enjoy over the next four years as an accompaniment to roast venison or slow-cooked lamb.
