Deeply coloured, medium bodied blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, matured in French oak barrels for fourteen months.

The Mill Race at Vergelegen was constructed during the tenure of Governor Adriaan van der Stel (1700 – 1708) to divert water from the Lourens river to the mill wheel.

During archaeological excavations the granite base and sides were uncovered, adding further to the growing knowledge of the history and tradition of Vergelegen.
