Reyneke Cornerstone 2017

At Reyneke they believe that the workers are the cornerstone of the business, which is an integral part of the holistic and biodynamic principles, that Reyneke follows. As such, the Cornerstone is an important wine within their range with the proceeds going toward education and housing projects, that improve their lives directly. The components of the 2017 vintage are made up of Cabernet Sauvignon (54%), Cabernet Franc and Merlot (14%). An intense sorting process of bunch and berry selection ensures that only the best fruit end up in the Nomblot concrete fermentation tanks. The wine matures for 18 months in French oak barrels, of which 30% are new and 70% second and third-fill barriques. This classical Bordeaux style blend combines freshness with real concentration, showcasing the best of Stellenbosch. Intense notes of blackcurrant, star anise, thyme with underlying dark fruit complete the nose of this blend. A core of dark fruit on the palate, combined with a good tannin structure and great complexity, makes this wine linger on the palate.
