100% old vine Cinsault from one block on the Kasteelberg Mountain in the Swartland. Very pure, precise and silky. After years of being used as the work horse backbone to so many reds, it is finally time to let Cinsault shine.


Tasting Notes

"In 2015 the Cinsault across the region had some sunburn, for a reason not completely clear to us, so we lost a big volume of the fruit on the sorting tables and ended up making much less than usual. The small volume we did end up bottling is one of our personal favourites though. It is slightly more concentrated than usual and the wine has greater depth and texture than in the past. After the intense sorting the wine ended up with a slightly bigger volume but with the same acidity as was the case in 2013 and 2014 and we are really looking forward to following the development of this wine in the bottle." Eben Sadie, Winemaker


Press Note:

"From Swartland Cinsault. Heady aromatics of cherry, wild strawberry, earth, herbs and spice. The palate packs a punch – there’s good depth of flavour, fresh acidity and although the tannins are by no means coarse, the wine has more structure than many other versions of the grape. " 93 points. Winemag.co.Za
