The grapes were destemmed and kept as whole berries. A portion of the stems were left outside in the sun to dry for 5 days and then it was added back into the tank. The dried-out stem’s ads perfumed aromatics and texture to the wine. Punch downs took place twice daily. Maturation took place in a ceramic clay Amphora and older French oak barrels for 10 months.
Ready for your enjoyment or can be aged for up to 2030.
Rickety Bridge Paulinas Reserve Old Vine Cinsault
The nose shows subtle notes of cherry, red currant, rose and fynbos while the palate has lovely fruit integrity and flavour intensity without being weighty. It’s a wonderfully balanced wine with bright acidity and fine, powdery tannins.
