Sijnn, Red 750ml 2016South Africa, Malgas
'Sijnn is one of the most amazing new terroirs in the Cape, producing wines of remarkable individuality. This Rhône meets Bordeaux meets the Douro Valley blend, made with grapes grown just 15 kilometres from the sea, is stony, complex and intensely aromatic, showing lavender and wild thyme flavours, grippy tannins and layered, mineral intense fruit. Superb stuff. Drink 2021-35.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 96/100
'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.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 94/100
'Distinctive shiraz-driven flagship with Touriga, Mourvèdre, Trincadeira & splash Cab. 2016 elegantly powerful, its rich dark spice, chocolate & sweet fruit offset by lively acidity, firm tannins. 20% new oak 22 months. 2014 yet unreleased. Also in 1.5 & 3L.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)
Alc: 14.2% | TA: 5.6 g/L | PH: 3.6
David Trafford’s Sijnn project is based in Malgas along the Breede River. Forty kilometres away from any other vineyards, it's tremendously rocky soil and Breede River-influenced microclimate is unlike any other in South Africa. These unfiltered, unfined, real wines are made in tiny volumes and speak of Malgas’ amazing terroir.
