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.

Christian Eedes (Winemag): 93/100

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.
