COASTAL REGION, SOUTH AFRICA
CINSAULT 95%, CABERNET FRANC 5%
This is a deep yet pretty Cinsault being generous of fruit yet full of life. The nose is alluringly aromatic with heady aromas of fresh damsons, plum sauce, hoi sin and star anise. The palate reflects these with its bright, fresh and gently textural notes that marry together with delicate finesse. From 35-40 year old, unirrigated vines in Paarl, this old dame is remarkably light on her feet This is just plain posh!
Anything driven by hoisin and plum sauce flavours, duck, goose and other dark meats or try with veggie spring rolls and Signapore noodles.
