The ‘Judgement of Stellenbosch’

In July 2018, Vergelegen hosted a tasting for 6 Masters of Wine, along with some of London’s top sommeliers, in Stellenbosch. In the tasting, the experts were served (blind) Vergelegen ‘V’ against the Bordeaux First Growths plus some Cult Wines from the USA. The results of the blind tasting were absolutely extraordinary. Vergelegen ‘V’ 2005 came in 1st Place, beating Mouton-Rothschild, Haut-Brion and Dominus!

Sadly, there is no Vergelegen ‘V’ 2005 left in the estate’s cellars, but after this extraordinary result Vergelegen were happy to arrange another dinner where the experiment was conducted again. Cru was fortunate enough to attend this special evening, where it was the turn of the 2012 to yet again surprise the vinous world and triumph over the great names of Bordeaux and California.

Vergelegen ‘V’ 2013

The 2013 vintage is arguably better than the 2012. According to Tim Atkin MW, who awarded both vintages a fabulous 95 points, 2013 may in fact be “the best V made yet… with notes of dried herbs, sweet oak and good structure and concentration” (TA). Crafted from an old clone of Cabernet Sauvignon, the vines which give life to this incredible cuvée grow on warm and north/northwest facing soil. Given the difficulties faced by the mightiest Bordeaux producers in 2013, the odds on Vergelegen repeating such a victory may be rather favourable...
