More information:

A beautiful pioneering wine estate in the middle of nowhere at the end of a long, dusty, bumpy road at the Southern tip of Africa. When David and Rita Trafford visited the Malgas region for the first time in 2000, they were blown away with the incredible soils specifically in the Lemoentuin area and immediately set about finding a suitable property to purchase.

Over 200 soil profile holes were dug on a 50m grid in the most promising areas and experts called in to assist us analyse and understand the soils. The geology of the region is in fact simple and comprises Bokkeveld shale with sporadic relics of river terraces – mainly sandstone boulders and pebbles. However, the shale is in various stages of weathering and together with varying layers of alluvial deposits give rise to a complex soil situation’.

Most of the Sijnn vineyards are based on soils with a combination of these alluvial deposits on the Bokkeveld shale base – balancing intensity and structure with aromatic complexity and finesse. These very poor, complex soils encourage a deep root system, and low growth and low yield giving rise to intense, complex wines of great individual character.
