Scions of Sinai ‘Rocinante’ 2023


WO Coastal Region

60% Chenin Blanc, 30% Grenache Blanc and 10% Roussanne

Named after Don Quixote’s horse, “Rocinante” means “the lead horse”. While to everyone else, Rocinante was an old nag, to Don Quixote he was a noble steed. Bernard feels the same way about Chenin Blanc, Grenache Blanc and Roussanne.

Christian Eedes (Winemag): “Chenin Blanc from Stellenbosch, with Grenache Blanc and Roussanne from Voor Paardeberg – all grapes picked on the same day. Exotic aromatics of citrus, stone fruit, pineapple and spice – warmer conditions after veraison in the Voor Paardeberg meant these grapes were slightly riper than usual. The platate is round, juicy and full of flavour making for an expressive, engaging wine.

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.
