Cinsault 2015

Naudé, Old Vines Cinsault, Darling, South Africa, 2015


From a farm just outside of Darling and vines that were planted in 1978, these old vineyards are impeccably maintained and produce an astounding quality of fruit. The key is to get the correct picking date and the wine takes care of itself.


Fragrant and elegant, showing the classic Cape Cinsault characteristics of red berries and Turkish Delight. This wine was made with minimal interference, no additions barring some sulphites, and has the potential to age for 30+ years.


Tamlyn Currin, writing for Jancis Robinson, wrote a fantastic note for this wine and bestowed it with a score of 17.5 out of 20…


“This is Cinsault in all its carpaccio, white pepper, beef tartare glory. Raw, wild, gypsy spirited, dancing in the dust at sunrise. Light as a feather, a will-‘o-the-wisp. Rose petals and rosehips and rain on bricks. No sign of ageing – Peter Pan Cinsault. You could chill this a little. It’s just delicious and utterly captivating.”
