Springfield Wholeberry Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 Vintage
To succeed in producing a quality Cabernet Sauvignon wine, you need to have as little intervention in the cellar as possible.
A simple but complex process
A gravity flow system transport the whole, uncrushed bunches. Fermentation with natural yeasts follows the Whole berry maceration.
The wine then matures for one year in oak barrels. The result is a velvety delicious Cabernet Sauvignon. It is an unfiltered wine with softer tannins.
It is worth decanting the wine when you are ready to open.
Every decision made on the Estate must be the best decision for the wine.
The farm plants a variety of cultivars due to the diverse soils. The hands-off winemaking expresses the individual terroirs and approach to winemaking.

The Edge Maduro B52 Cigar and Springfield Wholeberry Cabernet Sauvignon Pairing
Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the varietals that pair best with a steak. And if you are cooking pepper steak, it is a match.
The Edge B52 and Cabernet Sauvignon both have strong pepper tastes. The pepper and roasted vegetable flavours blend into a harmonious spicy pairing.
The Harmonious flavours of pepper in the wine and the cigar match perfect. The meaty, savoury flavours evolve to blend into a spicy marriage.
The oily wrapper has many veins. The flavour profile is intense, like a corona or a petite corona. An absolute spice bomb. The stocky missile cigar size gives the Edge some extra punch.
Flavours evolve with every strong puff. The spiciness becomes stronger.
It is a robust cigar, more potent than most others.
The spiciness lessens further into the cigar to allow rich, savoury notes to emerge.
You rarely taste a spicy muscle cigar that blends into cooked steak flavours as the smoke evolves.
The big flavours make the cigar and wine ideal to pair with food. And what is better to pair a rich oily Maduro and a Cabernet Sauvignon with a perfect cooked steak?
It is a decadent pairing ideal for a slow evening.
