Textbook Cabernet Sauvignon at a very appealing price, this is modern, fruity and stylishly oaked in 20% new barrels. Ripe cassis and blueberry flavours are complimented by mint and cedarwood notes. 2020-2025
Produced from three outstanding clones of Cabernet Sauvignon planted as “Mother Blocks” for the South African vineyard industry due to their suitability to the deep red clay soils on Edgebaston. Made to exude absolute purity of varietal character and as such display true Cabernet Sauvignon cassis and blackcurrent flavours. The wine has a fresh, minty herbaceousness backed by mocca vanilla oak. Firm structured tannins and a long finish on the palate show good ageing potential.
