Scions of Sinai ‘Nomadis’ 2020

R225.00

Cinsaut, with only a touch Pinotage. The aim is to curate the uniqueness of these two vineyards sharing the same soil type fit to these cultivars for a lighter style. Aiming at a pure expression of these cultivars by means of natural vinification methods (no additives or alterations to the juice or wine, except trace amounts of sulphites. No filtration and no fining). Just Cinsaut and Pinotage from oxidized soils aka sand with high silica content. Even though these two are not usually blended together, these two vineyards are unique by sharing a similar soil type, vine age and close ocean proximity that captures a common thread in tastiness, texture and vibrancy of their healthy grapes. A “window” to light textured soils and its impact on lighter reds. The result is a wine with refreshing, sour raspberry, pomegranate and white pepper flavours; fine textured tannins and impressive saline palate length.

Bernhard grew up in a wine farming family, on their (previously owned) farm, Helderzicht, in the Lower Helderberg region of Stellenbosch. Here the Bredells had been farming wine for over 160 years – 7 generations – and has essentially been responsible for developing this region. Starting with Peter Bredell’s arrival here in the 1850’s and passed down to his descendants aka “Scions”. Today Scions of Sinai Wines mainly focus on curating these uniquely located vineyards of the Lower Helderberg region (South East 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. Named Young Winemaker of the Year in Tim Atkin’s South Africa 2019 Special Report, Bernard favours a chemical-free approach in the vineyards and the winery.
