Super cool wine from an inspired young winemaker. This is a unique expression of Cinsault made very naturally (wild yeast, no fining, no filtration). Starting with some carbonic maceration to give the wine it's bright, aromatic lift and textural delicacy. Minimal maturation keeps everything fresh and juicy. The stems in the ferment add a nice tannic backbone and make this super food friendly...this is certainly going to be a staple for me with grilled pork and chicken this Summer / Fall. Something deliciously different and very affordable.
Top Value!

South Africa

- Now that it has adopted a multi-racial attitude, and now that the world has embraced its government and its exports, South Africa has become a major wine producer. Unfortunately, South Africa has had a difficult time joining the ranks of competitive winemaking countries. During the anti-apartheid sanctions in the 1980s, South African wine was dealt the huge blow when it was removed from the international market, and for political reasons it was quite difficult for wine producers to market wine to the black majority. Things are finally looking up for the wine industry here, and quality has never been higher. South Africa produces a grape cloned from Pinot Noir and Cinsault, called Pinotage, which is the country's unique varietal. Chenin Blanc (known as Steen) makes up one-third of its vines. Cabernet, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Shiraz are becoming increasingly popular as are Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Click for a list of bestselling items from South Africa.
