Cinsaut 47% WO Darling; Cabernet Sauvignon 33% & Syrah 20% WO Stellenbosch
The Cinsaut is from a magnificent old bush vine vineyard in Darling, the cooler coastal side of the Swartland. Part of a he farm, meticulously farmed by a great character called "Boetie". (Referred to as "Darling Boetie"!)
Vibrant medium ruby red colour. Lovely lifted spice and wild fruit nose. Very expressive. Soft easy drinking palate with nice vibrancy and some youthful tension. Loads of flavours already dancing across the palate to a refreshing dusty dry finish. Fascinating to see how this wine will develop, but why wait? Probably best between 2017 and 2016. Enjoy in a Zalto Burgundy glass or something similar with just about any food, even a Vegan dish!
