Bosman Family Vineyards Twyfeling Cinsaut 2018
Price: R240

Grapes from a 2003 vineyard. 10% whole-bunch fermentation. A complex nose with a top note of candy floss before strawberry, cherry and plum plus some earthiness and a little reduction in the background. The palate meanwhile is relatively full (alcohol is 14.29%) with moderate acidity and soft tannins. Plenty of flavours and a pleasure to drink.

CE’s rating: 91/100.
