Cinsault (also spelt Cinsaut) is a very common variety in South Africa. Similar to its relative, Grenache, Cinsault tends to grow very well in the warm, dry climate of South Africa. The wine it has produced in this case is like Pinot Noir’s rustic cousin; light-medium bodied, with cherry and berry fruits and spice. Slightly coarse tannin doesn’t detract from the sheer drinkability of the wine.
Drink with lamb cutlets done on the coals.

Brothers Tyrrel and Philip Myburgh’s great grandfather and his brother were making wine on the Joostenberg farm in the early 1900s. Back then the wine was made in a very traditional fashion, utterly devoid of the additives and manipulations that have helped define ‘modern’ wine. Sourcing fruit from Joostenberg and surrounding farms, Tyrrel and Philip have created this label to honour their forebears and have made the wines in the old style – simple, pure and honest.
