100% Cinsault Grape.

From gnarly 40 year old bush vines - an elegant national treasure from the Western Cape. New to Paul Roberts Wines June 2016.

An untraditional style, where elegance and true character prevail over colour and intensity. Gently compelling with aromas of the earth and stony minerality. The palate includes red fruits, cherries, a hint of spice, and creamy refreshing acidity. This is pure, elegant, restrained Cinsault with warm notes of crushed rocks and the regions dry earth. 

PERCHERON is a contemporary range of wines that celebrate traditional South Africa varietals and the re-introduction of the Percheron horse back into vineyard work (Percheron is a breed of French heavy horse traditionally used when many of these prized old plots were first established – it is enjoying a resurgence in South Africa as their hooves are kinder to the soil). The existence of this range has been heavily influenced by winemaker Marinda Kruger-van Eck’s passion and love of old grape varieties – Marinda has persuaded growers to nurture old cultivars, often destined for destruction, back to health to produce the very best fruit for these wines. Only traditional winemaking techniques are used to allow the purest expression of the old vine fruit to shine through.
