'60% of the grapes from Darling and 40% from Swartland, 100% whole-bunch fermented. Aromatics of red cherry, pomegranate, fresh herbs and a hint of earth. The palate is light and pretty with well delineated fruit, snappy acidity and crunchy tannins. Neatly done with a nice energy about it.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 91/100

'In this 2020 vintage 60% of the fruit comes from Darling old vines and 40% from a bushvine vineyard in the Swartland. Both vineyards are grown on iron rich clay. Semi-carbonic fermentation occurs naturally using 100% whole-bunches. The 2020 is light and fresh with lively acidity, crunchy tannins and loads of bright red fruit.' – Donovan Rall, Winemaker

Tasting notes on the 2019 vintage:
'From Swartland & Darling old bushvines, 2019 exudes aromatic ripeness, even a little red-fruit plushness on the otherwise light-footed palate. Firm, with a fresh fruit lift to dry tannin finish. 80% wholebunch; matured in mix old oak, concrete.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'Donovan Rall's delicious Cinsault is made with fruit from two vineyards - one in Darling and one in the Swartland. Fermented with 50% whole bunches, this is juicy, bright and lipsmackingly drinkable with summer pudding fruit, clove spice and some underlying backbone and tension. Drink 2021-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 94/100

Producer information Donovan Rall is one of SA’s finest, most exciting winemakers. In 2008, it all started with a bang when his first Rall White was awarded a Platter’s 5-Star. Since then, Donovan’s wines have continued on an unbelievable upward trajectory. He produces some of SA’s most sought-after wines including the stellar AVA single-vineyard wines, and his near-cult Rall White.
