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.
A medium-bodied dry red wine.
