Springfield Whole Berry Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
By Christian Eedes, 25 April 2019
Whole berry fermentation (grapes left uncrushed) is done to preserve fruit and keep tannins soft and this is precisely how the Whole Berry Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 from Springfield in Robertson comes across.
The nose shows floral perfume, crushed leaves and berries while the palate is pleasantly tutti-frutti, medium-bodied with fine tannins (alcohol: 13.5%). Approximate retail price: R175 a bottle.
