WINE MAKING NOTES
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.
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.
“Lovely dense earthy savory sun dried strawberry and bramble berry fruit nose. Full and fleshy, this is showy, bright and mouthwatering, displaying a crunchy edge, saline acidity and a fine sweet macerated red currant finish. Delicious.” – Greg Sherwood MW
