Van Loggerenberg Lötter Cinsaut 2021 is made from the second oldest registered red wine vineyard in the country, planted in 1932 by Koos Lötter on his farm in Franschhoek. These old bush vines are dryland farmed and produce really exceptional fruit. The soils are decomposed granite with underlying sandstone, which gives this wine its elegance and finesse. This vineyard ripens very late and due to the really cool weather during the 2021 harvest, the fruit took even longer to ripen fully. These were the last grapes to come into the cellar for the year. In the cellar, the grapes were 100% destemmed before crushing. All grapes were left to ferment naturally with one punch down performed daily. The wines underwent malolactic fermentation in concrete diamond cube. The wine was racked once after malolactic fermentation and returned to the concrete cube for 10 months before bottling. No enzymes or commercial yeasts were used in making the wines. Bottled at 12.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Lovely concentrated whiffs of dark red fruits, blackberry, plums and dates in particular. Subtle hints of sweet spice and sour cherries.

Palate: On entry beautiful bright red fruit greets you, cherries and plums in particular. Mid-palate has an elegant medium weight with hints of dry sweet spice.

Finish: Soft tannin structure with lingering dark red fruit notes such as blackberry and dates.
