For those of you unaware of Andre’s background, he has been the winemaker at Vergelegen in Stellenbosch since 1998 and instead of retiring at 60 (a policy that all Vergelegen employees are obliged to follow on their 60th birthday) Andre instead released this wine and a red blend, both sourced, from some of the best sites on the Vergelegen farm. He is considered by Richard Kelly MW to be 'the greatest winemaker in the world'.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, with the addition of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. The wine enjoyed 18 months in French oak barriques, half of them new. Drinking well now, but would benefit from further maturation and should still be drinking well into the next decade.

Fantastic smooth bold red

What a wine! Did not disappoint. Superb flavour with a smooth silky texture. Chocolate notes for sure with some perfectly matching berry tones. Could drink this with a lovely red meat stew dish, or equally on its own. Wow!
