Mount Abora Saffraan Cinsaut 2015

Trend setter.

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.

#WinemagRating: 91/100.

    When you drink this wine, the wind automatically blows through your hair – even if you’re indoors. Listening to Dave Gilmour masterstroking his guitar on the opening of Pink Floyd’s ‘Sorrow’ has much the same effect. Try it without a hat on.

      Kwisp, I think that’s the best descriptive comment on a wine I’ve ever read :)
