A fresh and cheery Beaujolais-style Cinsault from Stellenbosch, South Africa. A light and bright red with soft tannins with a pleasurable saline finish interspersed with bursts of red fruits. Stellenbosch soils tend to be acidic with decomposed granite and shale as it is a mountainous region, resulting in wines that tend to be dry in tannins with a slightly herbaceous character.

Hand harvested, whole bunch, spontaneous fermentation, ages in old oak for four months followed by a rough filtration. A moreish bottle best served lightly chilled.
