Edgebaston

Edgebaston GS Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

93 pts Robert Parker Jr.'s The Wine Advocate

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!

93 pts Robert Parker Jr.'s The Wine Advocate
The 2014 GS Cabernet Sauvignon has a very assured bouquet: blackberry, bilberry, cedar and graphite to the fore, nicely focused and demonstrating well-integrated new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, graphite-infused black fruit lacquering the mouth, but retaining impressive harmony and refinement towards the finish as it fans out with confidence. This is an excellent Cabernet from David Finlayson and it should age well for a decade or more.

5 Stars 2018 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Honours George Spies & his legendary 1960’s cabs. Strict barrel selection, 14 (*****) perfumed, with intense cassis & cranberry, impressive concentration & body (& 15% alcohol), velvet-smooth texture. For the long haul, like 13.



Winemaker Notes

This Wine is made from one clone of Cabernet Sauvignon planted on Edgebaston. The wine displays Cabernet Sauvignon cassis and blackcurrent fruit on the nose as well as having a fresh minty, herbaceousness backed by mocca 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.
