2017 Reyneke Organic Cornerstone
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.
The 2017 vintage is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Cabernet Franc and 14% Merlot.
The Cornerstone has always been an important wine within the Reyneke range, with the proceeds of this wine helping farm workers and their families with education, housing and retirement annuities. Reyneke believes that the workers are the cornerstone of the business, which is an integral part of the holistic and biodynamic principles, that they follow.
