Scions of Sinai ‘Gramadoelas’ Grenache Blanc 2022


WO Klein Karoo

‘Gramadoelas’ is a Single Vineyard of Grenache blanc from a continental arid climate Karoo terroir at 450m above sea level. A small area far to the eastern border of the Cape, with schist and shale soils. Grapes are destemmed and cold soaked on skins for 20 hours before pressing and natural fermentation in older oak barrels. Kept ageing on its fine lees in barrel for 9 months before bottling. Partial bottonage. A precise and perfumed wine with lovely salinity and fine texture.

Christian Eedes (Winemag):
“This vintage is quite neutral, characterised more by its acidity and texture than intensity of aroma or flavour. A hint of flinty reduction before hints of pear, peach, talcum powder and floral perfume while the palate is light, fresh and pithy. Alc: 12.43%.

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.
