Founded on 1 February 1700, Vergelegen (meaning "situated far away"), has been under the ownership of some of the world's great explorers and visionaries, each of whom, in their own way, have helped shape Vergelegen to what it is today: a world-class Estate.

The new releases consist of three single-vineyard wines, a Merlot and two examples of Cabernet Sauvignon, all from 2014, this being the first vintage that super-consultant Michel Rolland was involved.

Tasting notes:
'First Thought Cabernet Sauvignon is from a modern, early ripening clone on north-westerly facing slopes. Matured for 18 months in French oak, 100% new, the nose shows red currant and plums, rose petal and the merest hint of fynbos. The palate is medium bodied with pure fruit, fresh acidity and a classically dry finish.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 92/100
