David Finlayson produces this stunning white from a blend of three grapes - predominantly Sauvignon Blanc with small amounts of Semillon and Viognier. Aromas of tropical fruit and green apples lead to fresh tropical fruit flavours with hints of honey and a long, elegant finish. Try with South East Asian seafood dishes.

This was my first bottle of wine from Rude Wines. If the rest are as good as this I will be delighted. We matched it with scallops and chorizo and it enhanced the food very well. David

The Producer

Small in size but large in stature, Edgebaston consists of just 22 hectares of vines. David oversees all vineyard and winemaking activity, with a holistic and quality-driven approach. The estate uses only organic fertilisers in the vineyards and care is taken at every step of the winemaking process to ensure that all wines are produced in the most environmentally friendly manner. The wines are enticing, fresh and pure, with an underlying but unmistakable European influence. As you might have guessed, awards are ten-a-penny, with Edgebaston wines regularly receiving top points in South African wine bible, The Platter Guide and the winery a winner in The Wine Merchant Top 100 awards.

Tom Cannavan's Review

Don't just take our word for it; here's what wine writer Tom Cannavan has to say:

"There's a small but growing fashion for Southern Hemisphere winemakers to blend together aromatic white grape varieties that wouldn't normally sit together in classic European regions. This is a delightful example featuring mostly Sauvignon Blanc, along with Viognier and Semillon, blended to lovely effect as the grassiness of the Sauvignon, peach of the Viognier and buttery lemon of the Semillon combine. Zingy and vibrant, it's a silky charmer with lovely balance."

(Tom's reviewing the 2017 vintage )

The Region

The Edgebaston vineyards are planted on very deep, rich clay soils. This is unique to this particular part of Stellenbosch, which helps to produce wines with an excellent structure, classic style and very specific mineral character. A total of eleven varietals are grown on the estate, with both classic single varietal wines and ‘rockstar’ blends including The Pepper Pot Red and Berry Box White which offer a twist on the usual grape blends. Ever the experimenter, David’s recent project ‘Camino African’ involves cherry-picking specific plots and clonal selections for the release of two stunning wines – a Pinot Noir and Chenin Blanc – the culmination of his life and work in South Africa.

Must buy

This is a fantastic wine that ticks all my boxes. I loved the balance of tropical fruit with a hint of honey in there. It has a long elegant finish. I had it with smoked mussels but this is a wine you can drink on its own. A great find.
Thank you!
