Description

Cinsault is such a bright star in South Africa modern firmament. Crushed for flavour not colour, this 40 year old bush vine wine sucks only from the rocks underground. Bright, expressive, gently savoury on the nose and the colour of a freshly slapped arse. In spite of its blushing hue, there is masses of deep flavour here including hoisin sauce, fresh cherries, star anise and plum. A must have slightly chilled or with pink duck, pink lamb or carpaccio of beef. PERCHERON is a contemporary range of wines that celebrate traditional South Africa varietals and the re-introduction of the Percheron horse back into vineyard work (Percheron is a breed of French heavy horse traditionally used when many of these prized old plots were first established – it is enjoying a resurgence in South Africa as their hooves are kinder to the soil). The existence of this range has been heavily influenced by winemaker Marinda Kruger-van Eck’s passion and love of old grape varieties – Marinda has persuaded growers to nurture old cultivars, often destined for destruction, back to health to produce the very best fruit for these wines. Only traditional winemaking techniques are used to allow the purest expression of the old vine fruit to shine through.
