2016 Cinsault Gamay Noir Rosé

2016 Cinsault Gamay Noir Rosé

The grapes were harvested from two old parcels of vineyards. The Cinsault coming from a 20 year old vineyard in the Swartland and the Gamay Noir a 30 year old vineyard in Durbanville. Owing to the age of the vine, the yield was very low and was less than 5 t/ha. With efficient suckering and the removal of excess bunches, only the strongest shoots were left with grapes for optimum ripening. These grapes were harvested to ensure the perfect balance of ripe flavours and fresh acidity.
