Cinsaut (23) Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2020 and older
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.
Lovely dense earthy savoury sun dried strawberry and bramble berry fruit nose. Full and fleshy, this is showy, bright and mouth watering, displaying a crunchy edge, saline acidity and a fine sweet macerated red currant finish
