Scions of Sinai ‘Señor Tallos’ 2021

R230.00

A blend of 50% Chenin Blanc from Stellenbosch that is fermented and macerated on its skins; and 50% Grenache Blanc which is fermented 70% carbonically and then spends time on the Chenin’s skins.
90% of the wine is aged in old barrels under flor.
Honeycomb, peach, salt and nuts on the nose. A lovely citrus pith-type texture on the palate. Firm tannin (more than the 2020) and a solidly long finish.
Unique and delicious.

Christian Eedes: “Striking aromatics of citrus, apple, stone fruit, potpourri, dried herbs and almond. The palate is light (alcohol is 11.1%) but super-flavourful – pure fruit, zippy acidity and some tannic grip to the finish.”

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.
