Metzer Family Cinsault 2019
100% Cinsault. A single-vineyard wine from a dry-land, bushvine parcel situated on the lower foothills of the Helderberg West peak. The block was planted in 1964 on heavily weathered granitic soils and features a healthy sprinkling of Chenin Blanc, erroneously planted to replace dead Cinsault vines
The wine shows delicate flavors of red cherries, cranberrys, peppery spice as well as a hint of Turkish Delight. Despite its delicacy, the palate is firm and concentrated with fine dry tannins. An extremely versatile food wine that compliments everything from shellfish to white meats and on to aged cheeses.
