This is one of our most wonderful, delicious wines. It's blissfully light but full of character, with the lifted red fruit aromas. It could almost be Pinot Noir, with an earthiness and rusticity from Cinsault that gives it some oomph. It's excellent red to go with fish, but will also be brilliant with meats. We're saving some for Christmas, as it will be superb with turkey as well as cold cuts.


Tasting Notes

A wine with appetite-stirring, mouthwatering freshness with flavours of juicy strawberry, cherry, pomegranate, rose petal and pepper. It's has a zesty freshness that compels another sip. In fact, it's a job to resist polishing off the whole bottle. Juicily pristine; light, bright and beautiful to know. 100% old bushvine cinsault | ABV: 12% Serve with: Cod with olives, cold rare fillet of beef, marinated with garlic and herbs, seared tuna and salmon. A red for summer salads. Yummy with brie and camembert. Strawberries. If you have some at the end of summer keep it for your cold turkey and ham at Christmas.


Press Note:

Alheit Flotsam & Jetsam Stalwart Cinsault 2016 Juicy and bright with lovely supple cherry fruit with some peppery detail. Fresh and smashable with good acidity and a beautiful floral personality. Very fresh and detailed with nice brightness. Very fine and expressive. 92/100 (JG)
