WINEMAKING:

We take great care in sourcing from some of South Africa's best producers. Our Grenache originates from the Swartland and our Cinsault from Piekenierskloof. Both varietals were harvested with sunrise, immediately crushed, and moved to fermentation tanks. The grapes were cold-soaked at low temperatures before natural fermentation started. A portion of the grapes was whole bunch fermented, and the balance de-stemmed. After 3 weeks of fermentation, the wines were left on the skin for an additional 2 weeks. The final wines were then carefully transferred to old 300L French Oak barrels to undergo aging for a further 9 months before blending to create this soft, fruit-driven yet sophisticated, and a delicious red blend.

 

ORIGIN:

Swartland and Piekenierskloof.

TERROIR / SOIL:

Grenache: Panorama and Oakleaf soil profile.

Cinsault: Weathered sandstone and granite.

ANALYSIS:

Alc: 14 % vol

TA: 5.5 g/L

RS: 3.0 g/L

pH: 3.55

Total production: 2000 bottles

APPEARANCE:

Bright ruby red with a vibrant hue.

TASTING NOTE:

Notes of pomegranate, red berries, and spicy aromas. The initial senses on the nose are then backed by a fruit-driven palate that is juicy, lingers on and on with a fine tannin integration, and a good acidity that leaves a lasting impression.

SERVE WITH:

For optimum enjoyment, we recommend that you chill the wine slightly for at least an hour in your fridge. The Grenache & Cinsault blend is an excellent wine for warm South African summer days, early evening sundowners, and all-around great wine to impress your friends around the braai.

 

The light nature of the wine makes it easy to pair with all kinds of food: here are some of our favourite tried combinations, Steak Tartare, Kabeljou ceviche, and Asian pork short rib with coleslaw.
