Edgebaston Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Green apple, flinty and tropical fruit flavours on the nose flow through onto the palate where crisp, clean acidity is met by a creamy midpalate.  A softer and rounder version of Sauvignon Blanc than most modern day examples with more than a nod to the French style of the Loire.
Alc: 14.0  RS: 4.5  pH: 3.35  TA: 5.6  VA: 0.46  TSO2: 126  FSO2: 38
Edgebaston Chardonnay 2017
This is the Tenth vintage of Edgebaston Chardonnay.  The wine is made from 4 different vineyards.  As with previous vintages, the wine shows an elegant minerality with lime-citrus, sourdough and cinnamon flavours.  The tight minerality keeps a wonderful acid grip on the palate showing good aging potential.  A floral note of wild, white flowers such as frangipani and almond blossom is obvious on the front of the nose and follows through the palate.

Edgebaston Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Produced from three outstanding clones of Cabernet Sauvignon planted as “Mother Blocks” for the South African vineyard industry due to their suitability to the deep red clay soils on Edgebaston.  Made to exude absolute purity of varietal character and as such display true Cabernet Sauvignon cassis and blackcurrent flavours.  The wine has a fresh, minty herbaceousness backed by mocca vanilla oak. Firm structured tannins and a long finish on the palate show good ageing potential.  Made with more than a nod to the classic wines of the Medoc in the Bordeaux region, showing the period of time David Finlayson spent working at world renowned Chateau Margaux.

Edgebaston G.S. Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Edgebaston The Pepper Pot 2017

Camino Africana Chenin Blanc 2017 Old Vine Single Vineyard

This is a combination of grapes from the second oldest vineyard of Chenin Blanc in South Africa, planted in 1947, and another 56 year old bushvine vineyard. The wine was made with the absolute minimum intervention and to allow the old vines to express the true flavours of the site and variety with as gentle a human touch as possible.

The wine has an unmistakable minerality and the salty, Umami flavour on the palate that can only be found when vines have struggled for decades to make their mark in the soil.  This wine signifies something truly special to me as a winemaker and is part of my journey in life and wine in South Africa, hence the name, Camino Africana, “The African Way”
