High Road, Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2017 MAGNUM

(2 reviews)

The High Road is a boutique negociant producer who are benefiting from working with Miles Mossop as a consulting winemaker. They source their grapes from carefully selected trellised vineyards, from prime spots across Stellenbosch.

This is a magnum release of their Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon from 2017, a blessed vintage, exclusive to RAKQ.

This is Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon at its best; red berries, cassis, cedar and cigar box on the palate, with silky fine grained tannins, and a long luxurious finish.

A true reflection of an incredible vintage and fantastic winemaking.

Description

Providence shone especially brightly upon us in 2017, yielding two creations that would give untold joy to all who have the privilege of encountering them. The one is this Cabernet Sauvignon, a wine of such character and integrity it was deemed worthy of being dedicated to Les Sweidan’s first-born grandson, Louis. The other is Louis himself. Abundantly gregarious and infinitely lovable, his strong character is winning hearts wherever he goes. This selection of Cabernet Sauvignon from our mountainside vineyards delivered three of our finest barrels. It is presented exclusively in a limited number of magnums for your enjoyment. Each of 2017’s two standout bestowments can be enjoyed with fine dining and equally delightful company. Both will mature exceptionally well – the one to be delightfully quaffable and the other, charmingly affable.

Made as a varietal wine, it’s an example of the 2017 in Stellenbosch at its best. Leafy, dill aromas lead you into a palate of cigar box, cassis and red berries and silky, fine-grained tannins. Superb. 2022-31 – Tim Atkin Report 2020.

    Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve was only a “working title” when I tasted this wine, so I’m not sure what will eventually feature on the label. But who cares? Made as a varietal wine, it’s an example of the 2017 in Stellenbosch at its best. Leafy, dill aromas lead you into a palate of cigar box, cassis and red berries and silky, fine-grained tannins. Superb. 2022-31

    Only 3 select barrels, 2017 beautifully balanced, with opulent dark fruit effortlessly assimilating 20 months in 100% new oak. Svelte structure, fine, dry tannins & lingering farewell. A youthful beauty that will age with distinction.
