Thief in the Night
The first release of this Grenache Cinsault blend with a splash of Syrah, this is yet another very special wine from Duncan Savage. Old vines in Piekenierskloof with minimal intervention winemaking, old 500L oak barrels for fermentation and ageing in large oak foudres, all French. The resulting wine is beautifully perfumed – summer berries, strawberries, raspberries. So elegant, so drinkable. A real gem.
