Leeuwenkuil Cinsault

Vinification

Grapes were picked at different sugar levels to ensure a good balance. Fermented with the skins on, with punching down and pumping over, as well as carbonic maceration to retain upfront fruit flavours. The wine was aged in 500 L and 5000 L French oak barrels for 6 months until blending and bottling took place.

Features

The oldest dryland, bush vine vineyards was used as a source for this wine. The crop was reduced to 1 bunch per shoot to enhance grape quality. Grapes were picked at sugars ranging between 18 and 23 degrees Balling.

Food Pairings

Reduced bone marrow tomato pasta with black olives to give it a Mediterranean twist.
