‘Distinctive shiraz-driven flagship with trincadeira (tinta amarela), cab, mourvèdre & touriga in 2018. Forest-floor fruit harmoniously melded with a fine texture & elegant vinosity in an ageworthy blend that’s compelling & profound. Rich, dark & spicy, lifted by thrilling acid, firm tannin. 20% new oak, some Hungarian, 22 months. Also in 1.5 & 3L, as White.’ – Platter’s Guide, 5* (97/100)

‘Made in the heat of the very dry 2018 vintage, this shows how well this remarkable, isolated site can cope with tough conditions. Syrah focused with 45% Tinta Amarela, Trincaderia, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvèdre and Touriga Nacional, it marries aromas of lavender and pine aromas, subtle wood, meaty tannins and flavours of bramble, blackberry and cassis. 2022-28’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 95/100

'A vibrant deep red colour. Savoury and wild, with red berries, lavender, thyme and rosemary on the nose. It is inky and wild but has a beautiful freshness, and concentration on the mid palate. Charcuterie, entwined with rich dark spice and chocolate. It is elegantly powerful with a youthful freshness, yet a deep concentration, and a structured firm tannin profile, making sure this wine will last for many years. A beautiful lingering flavour remains on your palate, long after taking a sip. Hints of Blueberry cheesecake, a smooth and creamy texture on the palate. 2023-2030' – Sijnn

Producer information David Trafford’s Sijnn project is based in Malgas along the Breede River. Forty kilometers away from any other vineyards, it's tremendously rocky soil and Breede River-influenced microclimate is unlike any other in South Africa. These unfiltered, unfined, real wines are made in tiny volumes and speak of Malgas’ amazing terroir.
