Cloudscape Cinsault comes from vineyards lying in the shadow of Paarl Mountain, where a deep underground aquifer is the only source of water for these old bush vines. Grapes from 40 year old unirrigated old bush vines are harvested then gently crushed to extract all the flavour, but retain its delicate colour.The resulting juicy textural primary juice is then racked partially to barrel, mostly to steel, for fermentation. After a blend off the two components is combined, the whole is racked to tank before being gently fined, filtered and bottled.
On the nose this has an abundance of Cinsault’s hallmark cherry, plum and other orchard fruit. The palate has elegant and lovely layers of hoisin, soft damson plum, exotic spices and leafy texture.
Elegant layers of plum sauce, soft damson and exotic spices make this perfect with sticky duck finished on the braai.
