Grown by Pieter Bredell on Rustenhof Farm at the bottom of the Helderberg, amd made by Bernhard Bredell (Scions of Sinai) for us. This bottling is from a different parcel of the same old vine vineyard that produces the Scions of Sinai Féniks – although it is treated differently in the cellar, with more press juice and slightly newer oak (2nd and 3rd fill). Bernhard thought didn’t fit in the aesthetic of Scions of Sinai, but we loved it, so we asked him to bottle it for us. It is slightly bigger in structure than Bernhard’s other Pinotages, showing lovely red and black fruits, dried herbs and the classic pomegrante cut on the finish. Class.
