'From a 1976 vineyard on Rustenhof. 70% whole-bunch fermentation before maturation lasting 12 months in older 225- and 400-litre barrels. The nose shows red cherry and an extraordinary amount of exotic floral perfume. The palate is remarkably pure with bright acidity and very fine tannins, the finish possessing a salty quality. Austere in the best sense (alcohol is 11.5) and quite particular. Total production: 1 202 bottles.' – Christian Eedes,, 92/100

Winemaker's notes:
Feniks is a special Pinotage single vineyard I have a particular biast for. This dryfarmed bushvine vineyard was planted in 1976, by Koos and his brother Pieter Bredell. Rooted in sandy decomposed granite soils high in silica. The duplex clay and koffieklip layer is only much deeper. This, in combination with an early rootstock, and being old vines makes for much earlier flavour ripening on this variety.

Producer information Scion refers to the top part of a plant/vine or can also mean 'the descendant of'. Sinai refers to the ‘Sinai Hill’ which is a granite hill in the lower Helderberg region. Bernhard Bredell used these words to create the name Scions of Sinai which is also applicable given that he is the 7th generation (descendant) of Bredell wine farmers. Scions of Sinai Wines mainly focus on curating the uniquely located vineyards of the Lower Helderberg region around a granite hill. Bernhard hopes that his wines express the vineyard, it’s soil and the vintage clearly and purely.
