Vergenoegd is a three-century-old wine estate in the heart of Stellenbosch wine country. The vineyard uses more than a thousand lively Indian Runner Ducks as an organic means of pest control; each morning and afternoon, the ducks parade out to the vines and happily eat the snails and other insects on the vines.
Vergenoegd Runner Ducks
Runner Duck Red is a tribute to these ducks. The wine is a smooth, balanced blend of Touriga Nacional, Cabernet Franc,Malbec, and Tinta Barocco. It has notes of dark stone fruit (cherries and plums), as well as black currant and spice. NT540
Not your typical Shiraz: more rustic, drinks exceptional well. Ripe fruits with a hint of truffle undertone, and a warm finish.
Additionally, has notes of clean red fruit, black cherries, burnt coffee, white pepper, spice, leather and sweet vanilla. It has a nice balance on the palate and is well-balanced overall. It is a wine that exudes elegance while remaining a pleasant everyday quaffable Shiraz. NT888

Meerlust Rubicon has a faint fruit, green pepper, pine tree needles, with some espresso notes and a touch of aniseed. A gracious, generous, elegant wine. For sure one of the finest SA Reds. Elegant with silky tannins and a persistent and long finish. Wonderfully made. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Frank blend. Dark ruby in color. No sediment, even after 9 years! This is one finely balanced masterpiece that is only to be enjoyed with with more serious wine lovers. Beautifully balanced acidity and tannins. Great texture and rather complex character. Unbelievably smooth flow. Nice aging influence. Powerful for sure, but delicate delivery. NT1100
Meerlust Red is grown on the young vines which will eventually produce fruit for Meerlust's acclaimed Rubicon, the flagship Bordeaux blend. With a mocha and black currant nose, and notes of cherry, spice, and clay, the wine pairs beautifully with stews and steak, but is vivacious enough to drink with nearly any hearty food. NT680
Meerlust Merlot has rich velvety flavours and tanins. Well balanced. Quite fruity with hints of licorice and chocolate. Medium to long finish. It's a complex Merlot with flavours and aromas that surprises ones senses. It is a dry, full bodied wine with a long finish. A truly memorable experience. Good for any occasion. NT999
Aslina is the new venture of Ntsiki Biyela, Africa's first black female winemaker. Hailing from the rolling hills of Zululand, Ntsiki Biyela embarked on a life-changing journey to the Cape Winelands.

Ntsiki found international acclaim as the first black woman wine maker in Africa, producing wines with the boutique Stellekaya vineyard in Stellenbosch until launching Aslina early last year. Aslina is a small-scale, small-production winery with extremely limited production.
