This light, juicy red from Mick Craven is remarkably reminiscent of good Beaujolais, with fresh red fruit flavors, a slight hint of crunchy greenness, and a rocky, mineral finish with very restrained alcohol and tannins—if you think of South Africa only for big, warm climate reds like Cabernet, think again! Food Pairing Poultry, pork, cheeses & cured meats

This Cinsaut from coastal vineyards is aromatic and full-bodied. Light notes of herbs are mixed with ripe cherry, raspberry and cranberry flavors over a chalky texture. Moderate acidity and solid tannins frame the palate.

The 2022 Cinsault, vinified in concrete with six days on the skins, just a little muted on the nose at the moment despite coaxing. I manage to eke out traces of pomegranate and cranberry with aeration. Fine delineation. The palate is more articulate with red cherries and wild strawberry, gentle grip, and fine weight towards the finish with a dash of black pepper that leaves the mouth tingling on the finish. Give it a year in bottle.
