Restless River ‘Main Road & Dignity’ Cabernet Sauvignon 2017


This is the wine that first alerted us to Restless River years ago. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is grown deep in the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir heartland of the Upper Hemel en Aarde Vallley (just up from Newton Johnson). Cool-climate Cabernet allows for a longer ripening period and thus incredibly integrated tannin. Craig’s festidious approach results in a wine of structure and length, without relying on big, ripe flavours or lashings of new oak. Pure class. 2017 was awarded 5 Stars by Platter’s Wine Guide.

Restless River is synonymous with authentic, elegant wine. Craig and Anne Wessels own and run this small family estate in the cool Hemel-en-Aarde Valley.

Craig is committed to absolute site expression and a minimalist approach. Each vineyard on their farm is registered as a Single Vineyard and the wines are named after the vineyards.

Being terroir driven, the focus is on 100% single varietal wine: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. They also occasionally release a wine called Wanderlust – which changes every year and lays outside the core tenants of Restless River.
