Ripe, tropical fruit abounds on the nose but the wine does not become dull and uninteresting due to marvelous acidity and freshness on the palate. Serve well chilled at 8-10 degrees Centigrade. Do not serve with chocolate in any form!

Vergelegen's winemaking philosophy is simple: There must be harmony between the old and the new.

The grapes were all selected from Vergelegen’s Korhaan and Niel-Suid vineyards.

Grapes were either dried on the vines or on wooden pallets. Processing started the moment sufficient sugar concentration developed. The grapes were not crushed or de-stemmed but fermented on the skins in plastic bins. This helped to break down cell tissue and released slightly higher quantities of juice. The fermenting sweet juice was transferred to old barrels for completion of alcoholic fermentation.

The wine spent 13 months in old oak.
