Twyfeling Cinsaut WO Wellington Bosman Family Vineyards, 2018

South Africa

Grape Variety

Cinsaut

Cinsaut was previously one of the cornerstone grape varieties planted in the Bovlei Valley but subsequently fell out of fashion when the world started looking for rich, heavily oaked New World styles. The 2018 is a translucent ruby colour with red fruit aromas. The palate is soft and light with red fruit and bitter cherries complemented by a grippy savoury chocolate finish. Relatively light in structure, it has lots of flavour and personality. Bosman planted this vineyard in 2003 on Twyfeling, a Cinsaut heritage site which had previously been planted to the variety in 1964. An early harvest between February 26th and 28th, 2018 yielded small concentrated grapes. It was matured in a combination of second and third fill French oak barrels for 17 months.
