Seriously Cool Cinsault
“Our Cinsault is known as COOL because we recommend that you enjoy it at a lower temperature (around 14°C) and because it stems from the cooler False Bay region. We also describe it as SERIOUS because it ensures a well-structured, memorable length in the mouth.
The old bush vines gave rise to a soft, balanced tannin structure and elevated length. This wine is playful in its aromas with pronounced floral and perfume notes, backed by a savoury undertone. I enjoy going back to my glass to appreciate the complexity. In the mouth the prominent fruit aromatics are complemented by soft tannins that develop effortlessly.
This wine can be enjoyed on its own but also pairs well with a variety of dishes, especially with pigeon.” – Nadia Barnard (winemaker)
Waterkloof have supplied wine to our restaurants for at least the past five years, including that most important of wine list slots – the house wine (in the form of their False Bay range). The closure of restaurants has affected them more than most, because on-consumption has been an important part of their sales. We are assisting them, by collating orders on their behalf, as well as making the deliveries. Wine orders are only available in conjunction with a food order (and delivery is free of charge).
