CheNinà 2019

By , 8 September 2020



CheNinà 2019 is a collaboration between Bernhard Bredell of Scions of Sinai and Raphael Paterniti and Marta Gobbo of Openwine, the Cape Town wine bar/retailer operation. The wine is dedicated to the couple’s daughter and the wrap-around label, which draws inspiration from the story of Alice in Wonderland, was designed by Michael Beckurts, a student at the Creative Academy – it won silver plus the People’s Choice Award at the Label Design Awards sponsored by self-adhesive label supplier Rotolabel earlier this year.

The wine’s not half-bad, either. Deep in colour, the nose shows naartjie, peach, a funky leesy quality and spice while the palate has good fruit concentration, punchy acidity and a savoury finish. Layered and long, it’s geeky in a good way. Price: R340 a bottle.

CE’s rating: 93/100.
