Scions of Sinai ‘Féniks’ Old Vine Pinotage 2022


WO Stellenbosch

From a one-of-a-kind Certified Heritage Vineyard Pinotage block. A Single Vineyard planted to dry land bush vines in 1976 on soils that are uniquely silica rich decomposed granite that is sandy textured and well drained at 3,5km from the ocean. ‘Féniks’ undergoes a soft 60% whole bunch fermentation with the rest as whole berries under a submerged cap (no punchdowns). Aged on the fine lees in older large barrels for 11 months. Small berries packing plenty of concentration from growing conditions. A Pinotage with the grace of a Pinot Noir, but the power of a Syrah.

Christian Eedes (Winemag): “Heady aromatics of cherry, plum, fynbos and floral perfume on the nose before a palate that has profuse fruit, bright acidity and fine tannins. Juicy and vibrant on entry but ends dry. Alc: 12.7%.

Bernhard Bredell grew up in a wine farming family, on their (previously owned) farm, Helderzicht, in the Lower Helderberg region of Stellenbosch. The Bredells had been farming wine here for over 160 years – 7 generations – and had essentially been responsible for developing the region. It started with Peter Bredell’s arrival in the 1850’s and passed down to his descendants, a.k.a. “Scions”.

Scions of Sinai Wines mainly focuses on curating these uniquely located vineyards of the Lower Helderberg region (southeast of Stellenbosch) around a granite hill colloquially known as “Sinai Hill” – pure wines from a few specially selected dry farmed bushvine vineyards on decomposed granite. Bernard favours a chemical-free approach in the vineyards and the winery.

Bernhard Bredell was named Young Winemaker of the Year in the Tim Atkin South Africa Special Report 2019.
