Sijnn Red 2016 75cl


Tasting Note

Deep true red colour. Lovely fresh dark wild berry nose with salty slate, licorice/fennel aspect that seems to be a signature Malgas character. Dense, juicy fruit palate envelopes the substantial, concentrated structure. Drinking well now, but expect it to go on and on. Some complex, spicy fruitcake on the mid-palate and a long, dry, silky finish. Best between 2019 and 2027.


David and Rita Trafford discovered the future Sijnn land while on holiday in Malgas in 2000. The soil and landscape reminded them of Portugal and they were immediately intrigued. A purchase agreement and more than 200 soil profiles later, approximately ten hectares of vines were planted and the name Sijnn Wines was appropriated to the venture – fittingly so as the word 'sijnn' is derived from the Khoisan word meaning riverbank. Today Sijnn Wines has become well known for our interesting and bold choices of cultivars and award-winning blends. The wines are now made by Charla Haasbroek and she is awesome!
