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:
'The Merlot goes by the moniker of The Mistake after Rolland misunderstood volume requirements and instead of putting a blend together of 3 000 twelve-bottle cases, created a 300-case lot (price: R380 a bottle). Matured for 17 months in French oak, 50% new, the wine has a sense of great refinement about it. The nose shows red and black fruit, pencil shavings plus hints of floral perfume and dried herbs. The palate is medium bodied with very fine, supple tannins.' – Christian Eedes,, 91/100
