A defined bouquet of ripe red fruits underscored by aromas of plums, white pepper and potpourri spice. The palate is full bodied and pure with subtle notes of blood orange, incense and tree bark all neatly wound by a fresh acidity and ripe supple tannins. Drink now until 2021.
The Kitchen Sink Red is a multi-varietal blend made from distinctive vineyard parcels scattered throughout the Western Cape. The second vintage of this wine is a blend of 71% Shiraz, 8% Grenache, 7% Cinsault, 7% Mourvedre, 4% Sangiovese and 3% Viognier.
Minimalist wine-making techniques are employed to retain as much terroir and fruit character as possible. The grapes are de-stemmed into open top fermenters, including 20% whole bunches, and undergo a cold soaking for 2-3 days. The wine ferments naturally (without the addition of commercial yeast) for a period of 14 days during which it is punched down manually 2 times per day. Thereafter it is gently basket pressed and moved by gravity into barrel. The 2015 was raised for 12 months in a combination of seasoned French and American oak. The blend was bottled unfined and unfiltered on the 10 May 2015
