Manual top gear ratio is .717 w/final drive 2.76. DSG is .756/3.04. This is the same for all 2010 and 2011 Jetta/Golf/wagon TDI.
Enter those numbers in the calculator and find redline and you now have your redline speed. If the engine could go faster than redline it could probably go beyond that assuming the tires can stand it. Then again, with only 140 hp I wouldn't be surprised if around 128 was about the top speed. I had a sports coupe with 200 hp/200 torque and the top speed was around 145 mph.
Scroll down toward the bottom, and you'll see the listed electronically limited 125 MPH top speed. So I'm wondering what the top speed would be w/o the electronic limiter. Just from the seat of my pants feel when I accelerate onto the Interstate, it easily and quickly will hit 85 MPH w/o any strain, it feels like it would do 140 or 150 on the Autobann.
