From a 64 year old single vineyard, this wine has a clear strawberry hue and very perfumed, wild fencerow raspberry, and light rose petal aromas.  The palate is medium-bodied with light, slightly chalky tannin, displaying a slightly reserved personality and a touch of sour cherry toward the finish.

‘Tasted as part of an Old Vine Project line up, this tasty, aromatic Cinsault comes from a Voor Paardeberg site that was planted in 1954. Showing red cherry and citrus flavours, fine, lacy tannins and the faintest echo of oak.’ 90 points Tim Atkin

‘From a 1954 Paarl vineyard. The nose shows red and black cherry, a hint of reduction, earth and spice. Good fruit definition to go with fresh acidity and lightly grippy tannins. Round and relatively full in the mouth, this is substantial but not overbearing’ 93 points Christian Eedes
