This Cinsault comes from bush vine farmed grapes from the Welgelegen farm in Stellenbosch. I’ve gone away from a bigger, more structured style of Cinsault to attempt to enhance the bright fruit, floral notes and freshness of the grape. I’ve also used shorter time in barrel to this effect (10 months in older French oak). There is still a good, linear tannin structure and dry finish with a savoury hint on the back palate. My attempt at a great red wine for summer.
TOTAL PRODUTION: 2 barrels
