Edgebaston Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2017

95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc

Wine of Origin Stellenbosch 

Made from grapes picked off the clay-heavy section of our prestige GS vineyard; these grapes were picked five days earlier than the rest of the vineyard. They were fermented in a small 1.5 ton fermenter and punched down three times a day. After 21 days on skins they were matured in new French oak for 24 months. A small percentage Cabernet Franc was added to the barrels to soften the tannin structure and add a twist of difference to the usual CWG wine which has always been 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Tasting Notes: Typical of the house style, a big, iron-fisted style Cabernet Sauvignon with boysenberry and cassis on the nose. Ripe bramble, cassis fruit with a touch of vanilla oak and solid tannins on palate.

Drink from 2028 onwards.

Winemaker: David Finlayson
