Notes

Danie and Hugo Carinus have taken some liberty in calling their wine label Carinus Family Vineyards in that they are only very distantly related. They are, however, good friends and grape growers who supply some of the leading producers in the country from vineyards situated in Devon Valley, Polkadraai and the Swartland. Their label has been around for a few years but in 2016 inveigled rising star Lukas van Loggerenberg to oversee production with good result. From a 1981 Swartland vineyard but involving more acute viticulture and a barrel selection in the cellar.

Tasting notes:
'Top notes of hay and fynbos before citrus, peach and apricot – altogether more pronounced than it counterpart above. The palate is marked by concentrated fruit, punchy acidity and a pithy finish. This wine promises much but currently appears very primary and just a little unsettled. Alc 13%'. – Christian Eedes, Winemag, 93/100
