Cape Winemakers Guild

Groot Constantia CWG Gouverneurs Reserve 2018

55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Cabernet Franc

Wine of Origin Constantia

The backbone of this blend is Cabernet Sauvignon on free-draining gravel soil on a northerly facing slope. A big dollop of Cabernet Franc adds the aromatics and perfume to the blend. Both components were fermented in open top fermenters with regular punch-downs to maximise extraction. After the fermentation, the wines were pressed and aged in 75% new French oak for 15 months before the components were blended and bottled.

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.

Drink over the next 10 years.

Winemaker: Boela Gerber
