Kaapzicht Skuinsberg Cinsaut 2019

Lovely dense earthy savoury sun dried strawberry and bramble berry fruit nose. Full and fleshy, this is showy, bright andmouth watering, displaying a crunchy edge, saline acidity and a fine sweet macerated red currant finish. Delicious.

A medium-bodied dry red wine.

in the vineyard : 

Skuinsberg Cinsaut was planted in 1991 on the steepest slope on Kaapzicht: hence the name Skuinsberg/steephill. (The steep hills have claimed quite a few tractors over the past 40 years!) The soil is low potential, weathered granite - resulting in smaller berries and lower yields. On average we get between 10 - 13 tons from the 2.1 ha block.
80 to 380 metres aspect vineyard. All 1991 dry land bush vine on 3.3 hectares.

in the cellar : 

The grapes were hand-picked, fermented in old 500L French Oak casks, nothing added, no fuss, and no frills. Just pure old bush vine Cinsaut, with character and made with lots of love.
