100% Cinsault (Cinsaut in S. Africa)

Fresh, well-concentrated berry fruit, with smooth tannins and balanced alcohol, all thanks to this vintages longer ripening period. Good to pair with grilled and barbecued fare, pasta with hearty red sauces, charcuterie.

Winemaker Corlea Fourie believes that the Renaissance of Cinsaut is upon us! This is our humble (and modern) take on what a Wellington bush vine Cinsaut might look like. Sorted, de-stemmed, slightly crushed grapes fermented at lower temperatures (24-26oC) and matured in a 225l and second and third fill French oak barrels. (This vintage saw 10% new oak). Roughly filtered on the bottling line.

This particular vineyard was singularly farmed by a woman, Mrs. Hauptfleisch, in the 1800s. The townspeople did not think she could keep the business going without a husband, so dubbed her farm "Twyfeling"- or Afrikaans for "doubt". Little did they know that not only would her farm survive well into the future, but so too did her original tools, which are on display at the winery and shown on the wine label.

Bush vine vineyard called Hermitage-Kop on Twyfeling, Bovlei valley. Planted in 2003 this is a Cinsaut heritage site on the farm, as the previous Cinsaut planting here was in 1964.

Steeped in history and tradition, the 8th generation Bosman Family Vineyards is one of South Africas oldest and most established wineries. The rich history of Bosman Family Vineyards is a testament to the familys commitment to people, the land, and of course, the art of winemaking.

Situated in the shadow of the Limiet Mountains near Wellington in the Western Cape, Bosman Family Vineyards continues to build upon a proud family legacy. Producing exceptional quality, hand-crafted wines from specially selected vineyards from their farms in Wellington, Hermon & Hermanus epitomizing their distinct values and the extraordinary place they call home.

The Lelienfontein Estate, originally issued to French Huguenot, Philip de Royan in 1699 by then-Governor, Willem Adriaan van der Stel, was settled by the first generation of the family in 1798. The familys first ancestor, Hermanus Bosman, was a sieketrooster (caregiver) who worked in the Cape and played a central role in community development and social upliftment. Bosman lived by the motto of the family crest: faith, hope and love. His progressive thinking, desire to help his fellow man, and deep respect for the harmony of nature informed everything he did and shaped the both the future of the farm and the generations who followed. Today, the descendants of Hermanus Bosman are proud custodians of both his land and his legacy, devoted to responsible, handcrafted winemaking. The Lelienfontein Estate produced wine up until 1957, when the family turned their focus to their vine nursery. In 2007, the Bosmans returned to the long-held family tradition and released the first wines from their newly renovated 260-year-old cellar.
