A total of 40000 bottles were produced. 2013 is one of those vintages that seemed to go undetected on the radar of wine experts - a bit like ’61 vs ’62! We also bottled 30 magnums. Serve decanted with rib-eye steaks or lamb cutlets.

The grapes were selected from Vergelegen’s Rooiland and Stonepine vineyards. These vineyards are all north to northwest facing, with granite, Hutton and Clovelly soils. Vines were planted 4000 to the hectare.

The Cabernet was fermented in open/closed tanks at a constant temperature of 25°C and pumped over every 6 hours to maximize colour and tannin extraction.

The wine had 17 Months in barrel; 40% new oak from coopers Taransaud, Darnajou & Sylvain. The wine was bottled on 27 October 2014.

Food pairing

Decant 4 hours before serving with lamb cutlets, oxtail or rib –eye steaks.
