Scions of Sinai 'Rocinante' White Blend 2021

WO Coastal Region

A new wine in the Scions of Sinai stable. Named after Don Quixote's "noble steed" in the famous Cervantes novel.
An almost even blend of Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc with Voor Paardeberg Grenache Blanc and Roussanne. Co-fermented with 24 hours on skins and pressed into old oak. As usual no yeasts, enzymes, etc. 9 months on lees.

A textured, savoury and refreshing wine.

Scions of Sinai 'Gramadoelas' Grenache Blanc 2021

WO Klein Karoo

100% Grenache Blanc. Bernhard spent much of his youth in the Klein Karoo and after spending time in Priorat, Spain (where he was working with Grenache Blanc) he noticed how similar these two regions are. He then decided to make a Grenache Blanc from the Klein Karoo and came across this unique single vineyard near De Rust.

Grapes are destemmed and soaked on skins for 48 hours before pressing and natural fermentation in old oak.

A precise and perfumed wine with lovely salinity and fine texture.

Christian Eedes (Winemag): 95/100.

Scions of Sinai 'Granietsteen' Chenin Blanc 2021

WO Stellenbosch

100% Chenin Blanc. Old vine (1978) Chenin Blanc vineyard planted along the contours of Sinai Hill below the Helderberg. Dry grown and bush vine, Bernhard tends this vineyard with the utmost care and attention. 50% was de-stemmed and soaked with skins for 48 hours before being pressed. The other 50% was whole bunch pressed. Both portions landed in concrete (a first in 2021) for natural fermentation and aged on lees for 9 months.

An exceptional wine of intensity and balance. Truly world class.

Scions of Sinai 'Heldervallei' Cinsault 2021

WO Stellenbosch

100% Cinsault. Single vineyard planted at the end of the 1980's by Bernhard's uncle Anton 'Onderplaas' Bredell. 4km from False Bay on decomposed granite soils with a high quartz content, this is one of the coolest (temperature) Cinsault vineyards in Stellenbosch. 30% whole bunch ferment and raised in old French oak.

Perfume, precision and power. This is Stellenbosch Cinsault punching way above its weight.

Scions of Sinai 'Feniks' Pinotage 2021

WO Stellenbosch

100% Pinotage. Single vineyard wine planted in 1976. Rooted in coarse sandy decomposed granite soils high in silica. The duplex clay and koffieklip layer is situated deep down and houses the deepest roots. The bunches are small and conical, "like little hand grenades" as Bernhard puts it. 60% whole bunch fermentation (with a small portion semi-carbonic), the ferment is unusually slow and long for Pinotage adding spice, intensity and structure.

Aromatic, arresting and intense. A Pinotage with the grace of a Pinot Noir, but the power of a Syrah.

Christian Eedes (Winemag): 93/100.

Scions of Sinai 'Swanesang' Syrah 2021

WO Stellenbosch

100% Syrah. One of the last bush vine Syrah vineyards near the Helderberg. This 0.7 Ha vineyard is planted to teh SH1A clone. 80% whole bunch fermented with submerged caps - giving less access to oxygen and an overall more gentle process than normal. Think infusion rather than extraction. Aged in old French oak for 12 months.

Exceptional, evocative and elegant. Cool site Stellenbosch Syrah on granite; how wonderful!
