A beautiful limpid gold colour in your glass. Caramelised pineapple, Stony, Savoury nose. A Rich and full bodied flavour profile. A vibrant palate of honey and salted liquorice, peach pith, apple and pear skins and slate. Lovely minerality, enhancing the freshness and acidity of the wine. A good tannin structure coming.
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!
