Stellenbosch. The Bottelary Hills has been our home for four generations. Lovely dense earthy savoury sun dried strawberry and bramble berry fruit nose. Full and fleshy, this is showy, bright and mouthwatering, displaying a crunchy edge, saline acidity and a fine sweet macerated red currant finish. Delicious.
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.
