Vergelegen Estate DNA 2014

DNA is a Cabernet Franc dominant blend from the Vergelegen estate. The grapes were selected from the estates Kopland and Rooiland vineyards. The Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon blend has berry fruit and chocolate notes and shows a serious tannin structure and intensity but has soft round features that linger on the palate.

Vergelegen Estate DNA 2014

Compote of berry fruit nicely rounded by chocolate and
coffee notes. The tannin structure is round and soft with a
lingering aftertaste. Enjoy with Karoo lamb rack, beef
stews and pasta dishes.
2014 was a warm year with good, healthy grapes at
perfect ripeness. And vastly superior to the highly
regarded 2007 and 2009 vintages. Picking started for the
DNA on 6March (Merlot) and finished on 14 April 2014
(Cabernet). The wine was bottled on 24 November 2015.
ORIGIN
The grapes were all selected from Vergelegen’s Kopland
and Rooiland vineyards, planted on the north to northwesterly slopes. Row direction East to West.
VINIFICATION
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
26°C followed by a 44 day maceration on the skins. After
malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine
went into 100% new French oak barrels for 17 months.
Released: December 2019.
