    R 285.00

    “Die Plêk’’ literally means “the place” in Afrikaans and was the name Jasper Raats gave the old Cinsault vineyard owned by his friend Rupert McNaught-Davis. They have been talking about making a wine from it for some time, as Jasper felt that the block is “’just the place” for great old vine Cinsault. And so they did…

    Cinsault, or “Hermitage” as wine farmers like to call it, is a heritage cultivar from the Cape. The single vineyard bush vine dates back to 1974 and is meticulously cared for by hand. Due to its age, it renders naturally very low yields, while organic & biodynamic practices are employed with no use of pesticides, herbicides or chemicals.

    What can you expect?

    Lightly wooded, medium bodied, this wine greets you on the nose with aromatic floral notes which follow through with ripe strawberries, cherries, sweet spices, fine raspberry and tangy acidity with soft tannins.

    Aging potential?

    With proper cellaring, this wine will improve and continue to reward over the next 6-8 years.
