Illimis Cinsault was made from grapes sourced from a Darling vineyard planted in the 1970's close to the coast, fermented partly with carbonic maceration and aged in a combination of 225-litre and 500-litre 4th-fill barrels for 6 months. A total of 2,075 bottles were produced. Bottled at 12%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Delicate floral notes, almost like sweet perfume, hints of fruits such as strawberry and raspberry.

Palate: Bright red fruit notes on entry, strawberry raspberry and cherries, light tannin structure with good acidity.

Finish: Smooth with a lingering subtle salty finish.

Namibian born winemaker Lucinda Heyns worked as viticulturist for leading South African wineries and refined her winemaking skills with experience in South Africa, California and Italy before founding Illimis Wines in 2015.
