2021 Miles Mossop Chapter One Swartland Cinsault
This range of limited release wines is hand crafted by Miles. Each Chapter is unique and only 2001 bottles of Chapter One were produced.
The Cinsault comes from 22 year old bush trained vines from a single vineyard in Swartland. After fermentation the wine was left on its skins to macerate for 30 days and after draining off and second press was matured in old French oak barriques for 9 months.
Vibrant cherry red in colour with aromas of rose petals, brambles and herbs. The palate is filled with flavours of blackcurranrt, red berries, dried herbs and white pepper.
Heres what Miles says about these unique bottlings:
'Throughout my journey through the Cape Winelands I seek out interesting parcels of vineyards which speak to unique sites with the potential to produce top quality wines. This is a range where I can express these sites and produce small batches of exceptional wines from exceptional vineyard sites. These are single parcels which are wine styles and varieties which I love to drink, lovingly handcrafted in my pursuit of outstanding South African wines.'
