David Finlayson at Edgebaston has created this beautifully classic Sauvignon Blanc. David's previous experience in Bordeaux shines through in this very European style of white, with a dash of Semillon added to the mix to round out the cut glass citrus flavours and add a touch of richness to the finish. We'd advocate a chilled glass with a simple fish or tomato based dish but basically, whatever takes your fancy!

Buy this if...you love white Bordeaux with a sunnier outlook.

Cool, refined Sauvignon with a dash of honeyed Semillon for extra richness.

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 Reviews

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

"Winemaker David Finlayson's time making wine in Bordeaux probably informs the style of this wine, more rounded, fruity and yet tautly mineral that the more in-your-face style of many southern Hemisphere examples. There is grassiness and a hint of pea-shoot freshness, but otherwise the fruit is cool, apple and pear, like a bright orchard morning, the dewy freshness sliced through with crisp and tang acidity to leave this mouth-watering, dry and moreish."

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.
