David Finlayson GS Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

David Finlayson GS Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Tasting Notes

All grapes from our best vinayrd site were hand picked and fermented in small volumes Stainless Steel Tanks. A combination of punchdowns and pumpovers used to extract the best flavors and colours in the wine. Long post ferment maceration of 21 days. Only the free run wine is used for the GS. Maturation for 24 months in mainly new French oak before a fining with vegecol and bottling.

Winemaker Notes

This Wine is made from one clone of Cabernet Sauvignon planted on our Edgebaston vineyard. The wine displays Cabernet Sauvignon cassis and blackcurrant fruit on the nose as well as having a fresh minty, herbaceousness backed by mocha vanilla. A broad midpalate and long lasting flavours of Boysenberry and hints of sweet Mulberry follow through to join with the fresh Vanilla and Nutmeg spice on the finish. Firm structured tannins and a long finish on the palate show great ageing potential. Only 4000 bottles produced.
