This Cinsault is symbolic of the one ultimate philosophy of the winemaking team: To create an elegant, ever graceful and rewarding wine. From 29 year old bush-vine Cinsault in the Helderberg area, comes this Stellenbosch Vineyards Limited Release Cinsault 2018.
Cinsault or Hermitage as it is colloquially known in South Africa has had a resurgence in recent years. The integral part this grape played in the great Stellenbosch red blends of old is finally being recognized. It performs well in warmer climates and as such has found a home in many new world wine making countries such as Australia and South Africa.
What can you expect?
This wine explodes from the glass with red fruits and spicy fynbos undertones. It has a rich and succulent fruity palate with earthy undertones, a vibrant Tannin structure that is light on the palate but promotes aging of the wine.
Excellent served with hearty traditional South African dishes as well as Mediterranean style cuisine.
The wine can be enjoyed now, but will benefit from bottle aging for three to five years.
