Saffraan Cinsaut under the Mount Abora label always sits high up on the deliciousness index, the 2015 particularly so (Wine Cellar price: R110 a bottle).
Made by Johan “Stompie” Meyer, grapes come from a 37-year-old Swartland vineyard, the final wine extraordinarily expressive despite a alcohol of just 11.19%.
The nose shows raspberry, strawberry, red rose, scrub and white pepper. The palate is lean but very flavourful with snappy acidity and super-fine yet still grippy tannins. Resistance is futile.
