Description

This utterly drinkable Cinsaut originates from fine old bush vines in Paarl and the Helderberg in Stellenbosch respectively. Both vineyards grow on weathered granite soils with supplementary irrigation, and grapes are hand-picked at around 25ºB optimal ripeness to vividly capture the fruit’s natural flavour profile. In the cellar, gentle extraction and little oak maturation further enhance the drinkability of this refreshing wine.

Typical of Cinsaut this wine has a sweet fruit character on the nose and palate. It’s a juicy wine that bursts of cranberry, fresh red cherries and red wine gums. It pairs perfectly with light dishes such as spicy calamari, chorizo sausage rigatoni and charcuterie platters. Best served slightly chilled and shared among friends.

“Those quirky last words inspired this equally quirky Cinsaut – packed with juicy red berry fruit and wild cherries, some perfumed spice on the nose and a gentle silkiness on the palate. It is that of the unpretentious grace of a well-made Cinsaut that we really like.”
