“Nomadis is a vinous expression of the Lower Helderberg vicinities maritime/mediterenean climate through a lighter styled red wine blend. Capturing this makro climate and light textured decomposed granite sandy soils best by utilizing Cinsaut and Pinotage from this area. Both are situated on deep well drained sandy textured soils with poor fertility but high in quarts and silica fragments, elevating a unique site aroma and vibrant palate with light texture (like the soils). Both vineyards are registered as Old Vines and using deep rooted old dry farmed bushvine vineyards like these adds to the depth and complexity, even in this lighter red. Planted in 1975 and 1976 by brothers, Koos and Pieter Bredell.”
Celebrating the essence of old vine Cinsaut, a thin skinned variety, on sand soils close to the ocean. Light, elegant and delicate red with complexity and grainy tannins cementing a long follow. Floral perfumed with red cherry, pomegranates and some wild berries. White pepper and potpourri lurk behind the stage. More taste less tannin. Decently kept acidity adds to the vibrancy of the flavours on a bone dry finish. Pinotage complimenting the Cinsaut by adding length on the follow and cements something profoundly tasty.
