Deep true red colour. Lovely fresh dark wild berry nose with salty slate, licorice/fennel aspect that seems to be a signature Malgas character. Dense, juicy fruit palate envelopes the substantial, concentrated structure. Drinking well now, but expect it to go on and on. Some complex, spicy fruitcake on the mid-palate and a long, dry, silky finish. Best between 2019 and 2027. Enjoy in a Spiegelau Bordeaux Magnum glass or something similar with a wide range of rich food.
As Tim Atkin said it “Sijnn is one of the most amazing new terroirs in the Cape, producing wines of remarkable individuality. This Rhone meets Bordeaux meets the Douro Valley blend, made with grapes grown just 15km from the sea, I stony, complex and intensly aromatic, showing lavender, and wild thyme flavours, grippy tannins layered, mineral intense fruit.
