Tasting notes:
Attractive deep red, youthful colour. Subtle slate and red berry fruit on the nose. Quite restrained, but very attractive. Also quite restrained on the palate with gentle sweet fruit, pepper and spice. Soft, silky textured palate with a long fine finish. Drink now to 2020. Has enough zest to go with rich pasta, mushroom risotto and subtle red meat dishes.

Winemaker's comments:
An exciting new vineyard between the tiny hamlet of Malagas and Cape Infanta, at the mouth of the Breede River – called Sijnn by the original Khoisan inhabitants. Perched on a plateau of slate and rolled stones, about 15km from the southern oceans of Africa. At this stage there are no other vineyards within a 40 km radius, the closest being those inland around Swellendam and along the coast of Elim. A new ward, Malgas, has been formed, applicable from the 2010 vintage.

Vineyard block:
The complex stony soils, together with a warm dry climate moderated by constant sea breezes provides an ideal terroir to produce something unique. The soils are typically 85% stone, with about 600mm deep round, pudding stones on the surface with schist in the subsoil. All vines are grown as bush vines due to the exceptional low yield and vigour, from the 7 and 8 year old vines. Yield: 3,7 ton/ha
