This is a deep yet pretty Cinsault being generous of fruit yet full of life. The nose is alluringly aromatic with heady aromas of fresh damsons, plum sauce, hoi sin and star anise. The palate reflects these with its bright, fresh and gently textural notes that marry together with delicate finesse. Along with the Cinsault, there is around 5% Franschhoek Cabernet Franc which releases a subtle fragrant herbal notes, minerality and freshness, along with a tiny blob of Swartland Malbec for its smooth lushness.
From 35-40 year old, unirrigated vines in Paarl.
