2022 | Stellenbosch

Thirst is a live rock concert rather than a manufactured, boyband studio album. Our aim is to express its environment, the varietal and the vintage, in the most natural way. Our simple logic is, the less you manipulate the wine, the better it is, and we therefore capture its integrity, energy and individuality.

The Cinsault vines were planted in 1989 and are grown on sandy soils lining the banks of the Moddergat River. They are bush vines and keep fruit within the canopy, away from direct sunlight. There is no irrigation in this vineyard so it produces a small crop but one with lovely concentration and we harvested early during ripening to retain maximum freshness.

In the cellar, semi-carbonic maceration methods were used during the natural fermentation, resulting in a wonderfully perfumed fruit expression.

Another esoteric varietal from around Stellenbosch, near us. More fresh than the Gamay, the Cinsault has cranberry, crunchy dark cherry character and grippier tannins. This wine has attitude but delivers as much refreshment as the Gamay.
