Tasting Notes:

Dark ruby coloured core, which is bold for the cultivar. Black cherry and plums combine with sweet herbs and a slight smoked meat element. Generous fistfuls of chunky red and black fruit on the full palate that is juicy, yet structured, savoury and dry. Cinsaut’s daddy!

Since the first vintage was bottled in 1984, Kaapzicht has become highly respected for their good value for money, quality range of wines, having earned a multitude of local and international awards. For 3 generations the Steytler Family has been running their 190 hectare large estate hands-on: Brothers Danie and George being the winemaker and viticulturist and their wives being in charge of marketing and finances, as well hiring out a venue and a self-catering cottage. This beautiful estate in the Bottelary Hills celebrated its 60th anniversary as a family farm in 2006.

Skuinsberg Cinsaut was planted in 1991 on the steepest slope on Kaapzicht: hence the name Skuinsberg/steephill. (The steep hills have claimed quite a few tractors over the past 40 years!) The soil is low potential, weathered granite - resulting in smaller berries and lower yields. On average we get between 10 - 13 tons from the 2.1 ha block.

The grapes were hand-picked, fermented in old 500L French Oak casks, nothing added, no fuss, and no frills. Just pure old bush vine Cinsaut, with character and made with lots of love.

Food pairing

Enjoy with pork medallions in a cranberry jus. Serve slightly chilled.
