Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
The second release in the pioneering Wade Bales Regional Series. The Stellenbosch Red is a Cabernet Sauvignon from 2017, a vintage acknowledged by pundits as one of the greatest South African vintages in the past 50 years.
This is the outcome of a collaborative project combining the talents of the winemakers from five of Stellenbosch’s top wine farms.
Louis Strydom (Ernie Els), Abrie Beeslaar (Kanonkop), Jose Conde (Stark Conde), Morne Vrey (Delaire Graff), Nico Van Der Merwe (NvdM Wines).
“This wine shows the vibrancy and intensity of the superb 2017 vintage. It is positively brimming with youthful aromas of sweet sandalwood, violets, Christmas cake, sun raisined black berries and a touch of sweet chew tobacco. The acids are crunchy and fresh, framing the sweet red and black bramble berry fruits in a confident fashion. Fabulous dusty Cabernet Sauvignon typicity that is seamlessly blended to offer up a very fine example from multiple Stellenbosch terroirs. However much I like this wine now, you just know that it’s going to be so much better in five to six years’ time. Buy now and pop in your cellar. A really delightful wine.”
