Illimis Cinsault 2015

Red Wines

The red wines we've listed all have a common theme.  Rich powerful tastes associated with the New World (you'll find lots of big and bold black fruits with notes of cocoa, espresso and liquorice) - but they will surprise you.  They have secondary notes you won't expect.  We've got some balsamic, some dried herbs and some crushed red pepper. 

 

This is the vanguard of the new wave of South African wine, and if you like red wine, you've come to the right place.

Illimis Cinsault 2015

24.00

Lucinda Heyn’s Illimis Cinsault is sourced from a vineyard planted in 1972 on the Darling side of the Swartland, South Africa. 100% carbonic maceration before six months maturation in old oak.

Red cherry and fresh herbs plus a hint of candy floss and some earth with time in glass. Plenty of sweet red fruit, but no sweetness Pleasantly lean with good freshness and fine tannins, the finish possesses a salty quality.

Illimis is brought to us by surfer winemaker/viticulurist Lucinda Heyns, Illimis wines offer a “look through the window” in to the vineyard. Illimis - meaning clarity in Latin perfectly portrays this. Part of the young wave of winemakers, like Xander, able to buy parcels of fruit across the Western Cape, Lucinda works with a site in Elgin for her Chenin, and one farmer in Darling for her Cinsault. Still in its early days, Lucinda’s day job sees her working as a viticulturist at the Institute of Grape and Wine Sciences.
