Strange Kompanjie Cinsault
28 year old, dry grown bush vine Cinsault from organically farmed blocks, brought to the Wildeberg winery where roughly 30% of the fruit is carbonically macerated due to some whole bunch material in the press. The juice is then allowed to ferment naturally in older French oak. Bottled fined and filtered at very low sulphur levels allowing for this to be effectively a natural wine.
The nose is alluringly bright with aromas of fresh strawberry, juicy cherry and crunchy red fruit. The palate reflects these with its bright, fresh and gently textural notes that marry together with delicate finesse. This Cinsault is remarkably light on its feet. Full of joie de vivre and extremely quaffable- it is a real joy to drink.
Great with Mediterranean dishes with chargrilled veg, pan fried shrimp or Asian inspired dishes.
