The Heldervallei Cinsaut vineyard is a single demarcated vineyard in Southern Stellenbosch, Lower Hedlerberg area close to Firgrove. On the South East slope of Sinai Hill, nearby False Bay shore at 4km away. Dry farmed Bushvines, planted in 1988 by Anton & Pieter (Snr.) Bredell. Soils here are decomposed granite with iron fericrete pebbles, sandy at top with slight pink clay in subsoils. Also rare being in a Maritime macro climate for Cinsaut.Keeping it gentle in the cellar. All grapes are handpicked in small lugboxes. A blend between separate fermentations, all by natural occurring yeast from the vineyard itself. Partial wholebunch fermentations with submerged caps. Aged on its fine lees for 11 months in older 225 L and 400 L barrels. No new oak.Corlien’s note: “Fresh upfront perfume, rose petals, wild cherries and rosemary. Tight dry grip on finish as is expected from this variety.”Only 1019 bottles produced. 93 points: The Wine Magazine93 points: Tim Atkins MW94 points: Platter's Wine Guide
