Natte Valleij 2020 Coastal Cinsault Red
$ 1899 $ 2199
The father to the national varietal Pinotage and once stalwart red varietal of the industry, Cinsault has since fallen into obscurity. Affectionately still called Hermitage by the many old timers, it creates superbly drinkable wines festooned with red fruits, spice and surprising structure to age gracefully. This tribute to the wine-making past was hand crafted from selected parcels of old bush vines spread across the Cape, that have resolutely withstood time and showcases this varietal’s essence.
90pts Jesica Vargas, Wine Enthusiast
Delicate notes of raspberries form the nose. This well-structured red shows firm tannins alongside moderate acidity providing a good frame for a fruit-forward palate. It has a fine texture and fresh finish.
