The Cornerstone has always been an important wine within the Reyneke range, with the proceeds of the wine helping the farm workers and their families. The workers being the cornerstone of the business. The components consist of 41% Cabernet Franc, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and 26% Merlot. An intense sorting process of bunch selection and berry selection ensures that the best fruit from our biodynamic vineyards are selected. Fermentation takes place in concrete Nomblot fermentors. The wine spends 18 months in French oak barrels, 30% new and 70% second and third-fill.
This classical Bordeaux style blend combines freshness with a real intense concentration, showcasing the best of Stellenbosch. The wine presents with spicy cherries, cassis and mulberry nuances. Undertones of tobacco leaf and blackcurrant, are what ads more to a defined graphite minerality. This wine has a lovely balance, with fruity complexity and fine tannins which are linear and focused. The Cornerstone 2016 has an ageing potential of 7 years.
