Their newly bottled and recent released Old Vines Cinsault is an effort to bring tribute to one of the workhorse grapes of the South African wine industry.

Partnering with Johan Van Zyl from the farm Heidedal in the high mountains of the Piekenierskloof Valley, they put much effort into this vineyard and winemaking to produce a very individually styled wine. The grapes are grown on 700 meters above sea level on decomposed granite soils and were picked beginning February from a mature 64 year old vineyard.

In the winery they did 25% whole bunch natural fermentation which started slowly after three days of cold soak and completed in 14 days, then another 4 days on the skins after the wine was fermented dry. The wine spent 6 months in older small French oak barrels before preparing ( with minimum intervention ) for bottling.

The result is an honest wine and true to Old Vines Cinsault – reflecting where it comes from.

Tasting notes:
'Grapes from a 64-year-old Piekenierskloof vineyard, fermentation involved 25% whole bunch and maturation lasted six months in older small French oak barrels. On the nose, a hint of reduction before red and black cherry and pomegranate plus hints of fynbos, earth and spice. The palate has more depth than many other examples of this variety but it’s hardly rich or weighty and there’s no faulting balance or length. It’s immensely appealing if still very primary right now and should only gain in complexity over the next 12 to 36 months.' – Christian Eedes,, 91/100
