‘Grapes from bush vines close to False Bay. Fermented and matured for six months in a combination of concrete egg and older barrels. Red and black berries, a hint of floral perfume, fynbos, earth and spice plus a little reduction on the nose while the palate has good fruit concentration, bright acidity and powdery tannins. Relatively rich and round. Alcohol: 13.47%.’ – Christian Eedes,, 92/100

‘The colour is bright vibrant red. The nose is expressive with a complex spicy top note reminiscent of ground black pepper and sandalwood and fruits of fresh red cherry and ripe mulberry. There is an opulent fudge-like aroma that plays with the fresh red fruit aromas and adds a perception of richness to the wine. The elegant palate shows the pepper spice with the mulberry and cherry fruits and finishes dry with a touch of juiciness. As the maiden vintage, this wine is showing tight, dry tannin at this youthful stage and I am curious to see how the wine evolves with maturation.’ – Winemaker

Producer information Winemaker Coenie Snyman founded Rock of Eye in order to create a portfolio of investment-grade wines. The name Rock of Eye is derived from the combination of nature and intuition. Coenie believes in creating wines with as little human interference as possible. His focus is on Chenin Blanc’s from vines planted in 1980 on the single site slopes of Simonsberg while his Cinsault’s are from low lying, bushvine sandy soils at the edge of False Bay. Coenie was a recipient of the 2009 Diners Club Winemaker of the Year award and is also a member of the Cape Winemakers Guild.
