Cape Winemakers Guild

Edgebaston Cabernet Sauvignon Auction Reserve 2008

Fermented in 1,5 ton open tanks and punched down by hand every 4 hours. 14 days on the skins. Matured for 20 months in 2 new 300 Litre French oak barrels. Tasting note: This is a selection of the very best grapes and subsequent barrels from our GS vineyard. Intense cassis and black fruit flavours dominate the nose. Not a shy wine, the palate explodes with flavours layered in a complex weave of fruit and oak flavours backed by intensely structured but fine tannins. A rich wine that will partner rich meat dishes very well.

Winemaker: David Finlayson
