We are thrilled to share with you a wine that needs no introduction – the GS Cabernet Sauvignon 2019, renowned worldwide and celebrated as the Best Cabernet Sauvignon in the World by the prestigious Concours International des Cabernets wine competition just last year!
The GS Cabernet Sauvignon has long been a shining star in the realm of wines, consistently earning accolades and awards. Its reputation as one of the most exceptional wines produced in South Africa is well-deserved.
This masterpiece bears the name of the esteemed George Spies, who crafted two extraordinary vintages in 1966 and 1968. Over the years, George’s wines have become legendary and have even triumphed over some of the first growth Bordeaux’s in blind tastings – a true testament to its unparalleled quality.
Driven by the vision to create a premium, world-class Cabernet Sauvignon, David Finlayson has achieved nothing short of excellence, with each passing vintage surpassing the last. We are honored and incredibly fortunate to have secured the last remaining cases of this vintage that claimed the prestigious global prize. Finding such a gem is a rare treat, and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with our cherished Wine Gems subscribers.
