By , 25 November 2022

Charla Bosman (née Haasbroek), the winemaker at Sijnn in Malgas since December 2014, also makes wines under her own label, tasting notes and ratings for the latest releases as follows:

Charla Haasbroek Chenin Blanc 2021
Price: R250
Spontaneously fermented and mature for 11 months in an old 400-litre barrel. Complex aromatics with some flinty reduction preceding peach, apricot, cut apple, pineapple, some yeasty complexity, and spice. The palate has concentrated fruit, snappy acidity and an intensely savoury finish. Great depth of flavour – a flamboyant, edgy wine.

CE’s rating: 93/100.

Charla Haasbroek Prince of Peace 2021
Price: R300
A 50:50 blend of Grenache and Syrah, 50% of the former and 10% of the latter undergoing whole-bunch fermentation. Fermented and matured for 10 months in older oak before being blended and returned to barrel for another nine months. Captivating aromatics of red and black berries, pomegranate, fynbos, earth, pepper and spice. The palate is vivid and vibrant with great fruit density, plenty of drive and grippy but not aggressive tannins. Precisely made but equally full of character.

CE’s rating: 95/100.
