Inspired by the harvest apprentices of 2015 guided under the cheerful smile of young gun Herman du Preez, The Apprentice White Cinsault 2019 is produced from grapes harvested from a dryland vineyard planted in 1971 in the Bottelary hills. A selection of Cinsault Blanc are hand-picked and pressed whole in a traditional basket press. A close eye is kept on the juice and grapes are gently pressed yielding only the purest of juice. The juice is fermented in older 225-litre French oak barrels with wild yeast and kept on the lees in the barrel for 9 months. It is bottled unfined and only with a soft filtration. Bottled at 12.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Intriguing notes of lavender, roses, quince and pear.

Palate: Fruit forward with hints of citrus fruit, quince and white peaches. Beautifully textured mid-palate.

Finish: Rich but elegant with balanced acidity. Lingering notes of fennel.

After reaching tremendous international and local success with Stellenrust, owners Tertius Boshoff and Kobie van der Westhuizen decided to take things back to their roots to create wines without boundaries. The old Bottelary cellar was reinstated and the birth place of the first artisan wines created by a passion for old vineyards and special sites. The ArtiSons winery allows them to free their spirits and make wines as natural as possible.
