Vergelegen Estate V 2013

The 2013 is a beautiful and elegant wine with good
concentration and lovely fruit. The tannins are ripe
and the wine has a long aftertaste.
The 2012 winter blessed us with 880mm of rain.
The spring of 2012 was wet and cold and even the
end of summer (February 2013) was relatively cool
with good rain - 98mm. We started harvesting
Merlot on 5 March 2013 and the Cabernet
Sauvignon on 20 March 2013. The harvest of the
Cabernet finished on 11 April.
The grapes are always sourced from the Rondekop
Vineyards. Grown at 200-220 metres above sea
level, these vineyards are extremely wind exposed
and this leads to thick skinned berries that deliver
very concentrated juice.
Grapes were hand-picked and de-stemmed BUT not
crushed. The de-stemmed grapes were cooled to
8°C and ‘cold soaked’ for 168 hours. Fermentation
took place at 25°C followed by a 35 day maceration
on the skins. After malolactic fermentation in
stainless steel tanks, the wine went into 40% new
French oak barrels for 17 months
Cabernet Sauvignon 55%; Merlot 35%; Cabernet
Franc 5%; Petit Verdot 5%
Alc 14.52%
RS 2.94 g/l
