Percheron Old Vine Cinsault (South Africa)

£7.99

From gnarly 40 year old bush vines – an elegant national treasure from dry grown coastal vineyards. Boutinot has championed this grape variety on its own for many years before its current fashionable status, nobody is more delighted than Boutinot that Cinsault is such a bright star in South Africa modern firmament. Crushed for flavour not colour, this 40 year old unirrigated bush vine wine sucks only from the rocks underground. Bright, expressive, gently savoury on the nose and the colour of a freshly slapped arse. Along with its blushing hue, the palate rewards with fresh pomegranate flavour and acidity, savoury gamey notes, and a bright, beating heart of cherry ripe fruit. Slightly chilled with pink duck, pink lamb or carpaccio of beef, this is a beautifully defined expression of South Africa’s most achingly fashionable varietal.

FOOD MATCH: Delicious slightly chilled, this Cinsault’s bright, earthy
notes and acidity marries beautifully with Asian duck dishes, pork
belly, stir-fried beef and indeed carpaccio of tuna, beef or game.
