Reyneke Cornerstone 2015


Stellenbosch, South Africa

750ml / 14.28% ABV

Blend: 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 27% Cabernet Franc.

This classic Bordeaux style blend combines freshness with a real intense concentration showcasing the best of Stellenbosch. The wine presents with perfume, cassis, dark fruit and spicy nuances. Undertones of tobacco leaf and blackcurrant are what ads more to a defined graphite minerality. This wine has a lovely balance, with structured tannins, which are linear and focused.
The Cornerstone 2015 has an ageing potential of 7 to 10 years.
