It’s been said that Cinsault is the best cultivar at expressing Terroir and winemaker Alex Milner first discovered it during a harvest in Provence, despite it once being South Africa’s most widely planted varietal. The majority of what he was harvesting was destined to become rosé but this encounter planted the seed for what would become his Cinsault Collective, the same grape grown in four different regions, each beautifully expressing its own unique terroir.
But Alex doesn’t just craft beguiling Cinsault, he’s also painstakingly produced a Bordeaux Blend driven by Cabernet Sauvignon alongside Merlot influenced by the wines produced on the left bank of Bordeaux. It’s a brooding beauty and unashamedly South African but with enough charm to tame even the most determined Francophiles.
