The Details

In a Nutshell

From gnarly vines up to 65 years old - an elegant national treasure from the Western Cape.

Tasting Notes

An untraditional style, where elegance and true character prevail over colour and intensity. Gently compelling with aromas of the earth and stony minerality. The palate includes red fruits, cherries, a hint of spice and creamy refreshing acidity. This is pure, elegant, restrained Cinsault.

Production Notes

Vines are mostly 65 year old bush vines from hidden corners of the Cape; a true national treasure. No irrigation is used on the vineyards and very little crop control is needed due to the age of the vines naturally restricting yield. All grapes are harvested by hand.

Producer - Boutinot South Africa

2013 was Boutinot’s 22nd vintage in South Africa. Thanks to long-standing relationships with growers, they¬†have been able to consistently source the best parcels of fruit and successfully establish the Boutinot South Africa style and standard always developing and improving quality.

Press Quotes & Awards

Bronze (2013 vintage)

IWSC 2014

I have listed this bargain, joyful red out of my festive top 50 ... because it's selling so fast I feared if I waited there wouldn't be enough left to satisfy thirst. Perfumed, amazingly concentrated for the price (those gnarled old vines give you good grapes) and with very silky flesh, it's a Cape wine with a French accent. Race for your case.
