Cinsault, 2018

Tasting Note:

Neighbouring David & Nadia’s Hoe-Steen vineyard on the border between the Swartland and Darling regions, Rall’s Cinsault is a blend of two vineyards planted in 1952 and 1982 predominantly on clay. 50% whole bunch fermentation is carried out on the Swartland component and 100% on the Darling. The Darling vineyard is fermented and aged in concrete while the Swartland element is raised in barrel. Unlike some of the more rustic and tannic Cinsaults on the market, Donovan’s aim is to retain fruit and keep a juicy, primary style, it therefore only sees 6-7 months of maturation before bottling. Light on its feet with medium bodied, juicy red fruit. Produced in a raspberry-strawberry, cherry stone style, it is a surprisingly versatile wine, perfect for enjoying ever-so-slightly cool on its own or a fine pairing to lighter dishes.
