2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Klasse Reserve

100% Cabernet Sauvignon

92pts - Vinous/ Owen Bargreen

A multi-vineyard selection of Cabernet Sauvignon that was fermented entirely in concrete. 

Inspired by the French Grand Cru wines, Gard “Grand Klasse” is our reserve-level program, aptly named in reflection of our Scandinavian heritage.

Tasting notes

Sweet currants and raspberry with cocoa powder and ripe plums. A sultry sweet smoke on the nose weaves in the background behind fruit that smells remarkably silky before even tasting it. Swirling brings up complicated notes of fruit, spice, smoke and subtle black tea. The palate is saturated and silky with great mid-palate density and lithe tannins that merge with the fruit to create an extremely long and persistent finish.

Production notes

A multi vineyard selection of Cabernet Sauvignon that was fermented entirely in concrete. Bringing in components from each Estate site to add dimension, Scarline for density and concentration, Solaksen for roundness and texture and Laura Lee for bright acidity and red fruits. Meant to showcase classic, elegant Cabernet with seamless transitions and beguiling concentration.

"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Klasse reveals dense dark chocolate with espresso bean tones on the palate, along with good freshness and stony undertones. Full-bodied and well-structured, this has another decade or more to go."
