Cape Winemakers Guild

Groot Constantia CWG Gouverneurs Reserve 2018

80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc

The grapes were picked at 24 – 25°Balling, destemmed upon arrival at the cellar and immediately inoculated with selected yeast. During fermentation, the wine was punched-down four times a day in open fermenters. The wine was pressed off the skins after fermentation, and malolactic fermentation was done in barrel and aged for 15 months in 75% new and 25% 2nd and 3rd fill 225 litre French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes: The wine shows richness with blueberry and blackberry aromas, a hint of floral perfume and subtle cedarwood flavours. The palate is powerful, and fine tannins promise good ageing potential.

10 cases of this wine were previously sold on the 2020 Auction.

Ready for drinking between 2023 and 2038.
