Restless River Main Road & Dignity 2020

R848.00

Region: Hemel-En-Aarde

Tasting note:

Named after the two blocks that supply its raw material, Main Road & Dignity is a very rare example of a varietal Cabernet Sauvignon from the Hemel-en-Aarde region. Picked late in a cool site, it has cassis, bay leaf, fresh herb and damson flavours, grippy tannins, appealing zip and freshness and the concentration to age. 2025-32’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2023, 94/100

‘Matured for some 22 months in 225-litre barrels, 20% new. Cassis, incense, violets, tea leaf and oystershell on the nose – very little herbal character, good or bad… Medium bodied and yet not short of fruit weight and structure while the tannins are fine, the finish properly dry.’ – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 94/100

‘Deep, lustrous crimson. Quite a strong pyrazine character. Not as convincing as the Pinot 2021 from this producer but a serious, well-constructed wine. Slightly drying finish. 2024-2030’ – Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, 16+/20
