Kaapzicht Skuinsberg Cinsaut 2018
Kaapzicht Skuinsberg Cinsaut 2018
All 1991 dry land bush vine on 3.3 hectares. 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. Delicious.

Cellar

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.

Vineyard

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.
