Sijnn Red

Availability: In stock

Attractive deep red colour. Slate, wild berries, herbs, liquorice and subtle barrel maturation character adding to the beguiling nose. Substantial palate with a rich texture and layered, complex flavours and an attractive dry finish. Already a wine worth savouring, we're convinced it will develop beautifully over the next three years or more.

Sijnn Red
More information:
An exciting new vineyard between the tiny hamlet of Malgas and Cape Infanta, at the mouth of the Breede River - called Sijnn by the original Khoisan inhabitants. Perched on a plateau of slate and rolled stones, about 15km from the southern oceans of Africa. At this stage there are no other vineyards within a 40km radius, the closest being those inland around Swellendam and along the coast of Elim. The wines are made by the De Trafford team in Stellenbosch. The complex stony soils, together with a warm, dry climate moderated by constant sea breezes provides an ideal terroir to produce something unique. A mix of varieties have been planted from various origins deemed suitable to this area. All vines are grown as bush vines due to the exceptional low yield and vigour. This is the third vintage from the 5 year old vines as well as some 4 year old vines. All vines planted on a mix of drought resistant rootstocks and a mix of clones for complexity and diversity.

" Wild dark fruits on nose and palate; perfectly ripe with a strong mineral element. Refreshing, smooth and powerful with very good dry lenght. A very impressive wine that evolves in the glass. This wine calls for robust fare, roast or grilled red meats, or a rich casserole. " - John Wilson, Wilson on Wine 2016

"Full-bodied complex wine with firm savoury cherry fruits, good tannic structure, subtle oak and a long dry finish." -John Wilson, The Irish Times, 17 May 2014
