Edgebaston

Edgebaston GS Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

94 pts John Platter

Tasting Notes

An immensely rich, dark and structured wine with a deep black ,crimson color. The palate is redolent of cranberry, cassis and blueberry with an aroma of mocha coffee and vanilla. The palate is weighty with a ripe tannic structure giving a velvety, smooth but dense covering of the tastebuds. The fruit sweetness of true Cabernet Sauvignon flavor is all pervading in this wine and carries it through long onto the aftertaste, leaving you wanting more!

Awards, Reviews and other Notes

94 pts John Platter

90 pts Tim Atkin
Big, bold, serious and strapping, this is a richly oaked, concentrated Cabernet with lots of weight and alcohol and fine-grained tannins. This has the right components, but needs to come together in the bottle. 2020-28

Winemaker Notes

The grapes from our GS vineyard are very small, like peas and this leads to incredible concentration when we make this, our purest and finest expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Simonsberg mountain, home of South Africa’s best Cabernets. The grapes are destemmed but not crushed into a small open fermenter. They are punched down with handheld sticks every 4-6 hours and after 5-6 days, the wine is pressed off into the new oak barrels to complete fermentation. After MLF, the wines are sulphured and then returned to barrel for 18 months before bottling.
