‘No one in South Africa makes a wine quite like this. Sourced from very poor soils in out-of- the-way Malgas, it's a unique blend of mostly Syrah with 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Amarella. Intense, gutsy and engagingly perfumed, with oregano and lavender aromas and a palate of damson, blood orange, black olive and cooked meat. Layered, complex and age-worthy. 2025-35’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2023, 96/100

‘Blend in trimmed from 5 to 4 varieties: 58% Syrah, equal Cab, Touriga & Tinta Amarela, remains big, plush & imposing. Concentrated black cherry fruit with aromatic tobacco note, intricate spicing and svelte, silky texture, promising beneficial cellaring. Follows meatier.’ – Platter’s Guide 4*(94/100)

‘A vibrant deep red colour. A beautiful and complex nose of savoury notes, fynbos, earthy and red plum. A lovely vibrant freshness and tension to the nose and palate. There is a mysterious red fruit meets olive brine and slate character. It is inky and wild but has a beautiful freshness, and concentration of cassis, blueberry fruit on the mid palate. Stony character and minerality lingers long after the first sip. It is elegantly powerful with a youthful freshness, yet a deep concentration, and a firm structured tannin profile, making sure this wine will last for many years.’ – Winemaker

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.
