Nieuwe Haarlem Cinsault 2016

Above board.

You’ve got it good when something like the Nieuwe Haarlem Cinsault 2016, grapes from 40-year-old Piekenierskloof bush vines, is available for just R75 a bottle.

The nose shows a slight reductive note before red cherry, plums, earth and spice. The palate is broad but equally not short of freshness and grip, the finish suitably savoury (alcohol is 13.37%). Nicely put together and the label isn’t half bad either – it won silver at the Rotolabel Wine Label Design Awards earlier this year (see here).

Editor’s rating: 88/100.
