Scions of Sinai Heldervallei Cinsault 2021


A wine of stunning aromatic expression, vivid flavours and grace. Floral, with savoury and sweet spices, smoke, rough earth, summer fruit compote and sage. Medium bodied, coarsened silk and pure flow. The very definition of elegance and in a mould that is simply unattainable outside of South Africa. Waters Wine Co


The 2021 Heldervallei is pure Cinsault that lies adjacent to the parcel of Chenin Blanc on Sinai Hill from vines planted in 1988, although the original vineyard is 20 years older and some of those vines are extant. Blended with 30% whole clusters with 10 months on the lees, it has a powerful, delineated bouquet with red berry fruit, wild mint and fennel, a slight tang of marmalade. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, very smooth and pliant, perfect balance and purity, gentle grip with mineral-rich red berry fruit. Simply one of the finest Cinsault wines you will find anywhere. Drinking Window: 2023 – 2040. 95 Points, Neil Martin, Vinous
