Sijnn Red 2016
By Christian Eedes, 4 September 2020
What constitutes optimal winegrowing country is very much in flux, something that is well demonstrated by Sijnn, the property established by David Trafford of De Trafford near Malgas, near the Breede River mouth and some 250 km east of Cape Town. The Red from Sijnn is a field blend of Syrah, Mourvèdre, Touriga Nacional and Trincadeira and the 2016 has just been released.
The nose is very expressive with notes of violets, dark berries, earth and spice while the palate shows extraordinary depth, presenting as smooth-textured in the best sense, the finish very dry. Price: R390 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 94/100.
