Scions of Sinai ‘Señor Tallos’ 2020

R225.00

This is a skin macerated white wine made from differently handled portions of 2 white varieties well suited for the style in SA, Chenin blanc and Grenache blanc. Both hail from granite soils. Aiming to capture the texture and individual flavours these cultivars has to offer by means of natural vinification methods, skin maceration and spontaneous flor ageing (no additives or alterations to the juice or wine, except trace amounts of sulphites. No filtration and no fining). White grapes often have more to offer, this is a persuit of finding those offerings. In 2020 the result is a wine with intriguing, citrus, almonds and lemongrass tea 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.
