About this Item

Edgebaston Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, 2017
36 (6 x 6) 750ml

“I like to keep this winery focused on the vineyards, on the quality of the grapes and the winemaking process. It’s very much a family affair, it’s myself, my wife and two children, and then only one or two key staff members.” - David Finlayson

95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc

Made from grapes picked off the clay-heavy section of our prestige GS vineyard; these grapes were picked five days earlier than the rest of the vineyard. They were fermented in a small 1.5 ton fermenter and punched down three times a day. After 21 days on skins, they were matured in new French oak for 24 months. A small percentage Cabernet Franc was added to the barrels to soften the tannin structure and add a twist of difference to the usual CWG wine
which has always been 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Tasting Notes: Typical of the house style, a big, iron-fisted style Cabernet Sauvignon with boysenberry and cassis on the nose. Ripe bramble, cassis fruit with a touch of vanilla oak and solid tannins on palate.

36 Cases of this wine were sold on the 2020 auction.

Ready for drinking from 2025 to 2035.
