Grapes: Cinsault 95% , Cabernet Franc 5%
Style: Ripe & fruity
Country of origin: South Africa, Coastal Region
Cinsault has bewilderingly been overlooked in the Cape for too long but is a grape variety that is finally finding favour with wine drinkers. The yields from the 35-40 year old, dry-grown, Cinsault bush-vines are naturally restricted. Grapes are hand-picked and the made wine is stored in large old French barrels resulting in a wine full of lovely juiciness in which ripe red fruit dominates.
This is a deep yet pretty Cinsault being generous of fruit yet full of life. The nose is alluringly aromatic with heady aromas of fresh damsons, plum sauce, hoi sin and star anise. The palate reflects these with its bright, fresh and gently textural notes that marry together with delicate finesse.
Drink with anything driven by hoisin and plum sauce flavours, duck, goose and other dark meats. Also good with lamb.
Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.
