    Lone Wolf Cinsault 2020

    The section of vines used for the production of the Lone Wolf Cinsault, forms part of a larger Pinotage vineyard and was planted to fully utilize the demarcated area of land. It is a rather special story about an old vineyard in Stellenbosch. Cinsault planted in 1953, as a result of the unavailability of enough Pinotage planting material. 
    It was planted by chance, now 65 odd years later, B Vintners are cultivating and harvesting this piece of history separately and producing a stand-alone wine. Only 1000 bottles produced. It is a charming and eloquent expression of the variety.

    What can you expect?

    The nose shows cranberry, raspberry, and some red cherry notes, with a floral element that is underpinned by fragrant spices. It is light of touch on the palate but remains concentrated with bright acidity and powdery tannins, giving length to the dry finish.

    Food pairing?

    Roast pork with herbs and fennel / Rack of venison served medium / Game fish on the grill – we love locally caught yellow tail

    Ageing potential?

    Drinks exceptionally well now. Will benefit from cellaring for another 6 – 8 years
