Country: South Africa
Bottle size: 750 mL
Eyes: Deep plum centre with purple rim.
Nose: Lovely fresh berry flavours with hints of tobacco, spice and savouriness.
Mouth: Luscious and concentrated although of medium body. A bold wine with an elegant structure.
Recommended food pairings: Fantastic wine to pair with a whole range of dishes. A perfect accompaniment to an antipasti platter with cured meat and sausage. With mains of barbequed meat, pasta and pizza dishes.
Winemaker: Corlea Fourie
Growing conditions: Bush vine vineyard called “Hermitage-Kop” on Twyfeling, Bovlei valley. Planted in 2003 this is a Cinsaut heritage site on the farm as the previous Cinsaut planting here was in 1964.
Winemaking notes: This is our humble (and modern) take on what a Wellington bush vine Cinsaut might look like. Sorted, de-stemmed, slightly crushed grapes fermented at lower temperatures (24-26oC) and matured in a 225l and second and third fill French oak barrels. Roughly filtered on the bottling line.
