Rock Of Eye Cinsault 2022


Region: Stellenbosch

Tasting note:

‘Grapes from bush vines close to False Bay. Fermented and matured for six months in a combination of concrete egg and older barrels. Red and black berries, a hint of floral perfume, fynbos, earth and spice plus a little reduction on the nose while the palate has good fruit concentration, bright acidity and powdery tannins. Relatively rich and round. Alcohol: 13.47%.’ – Christian Eedes,, 92/100

‘The colour is bright vibrant red. The nose is expressive with a complex spicy top note reminiscent of ground black pepper and sandalwood and fruits of fresh red cherry and ripe mulberry. There is an opulent fudge-like aroma that plays with the fresh red fruit aromas and adds a perception of richness to the wine. The elegant palate shows the pepper spice with the mulberry and cherry fruits and finishes dry with a touch of juiciness. As the maiden vintage, this wine is showing tight, dry tannin at this youthful stage and I am curious to see how the wine evolves with maturation.’ – Winemaker
