Savage Follow The Line 2016

/TKIN0285

"Jamie Goode wrote of the maiden 2014 vintage ""This is sensational. It's a new red wine from Duncan Savage, and it's a blend of 58% Cinsault, 21% Grenache and 21% Syrah. We were served it blind and I reckoned it was a supremely elegant warmer climate red, but I didn't get any further than that. It's such a beautiful wine, but it will be incredibly hard to find, alas. I reckon it's a new South African great. It proves once again that Cinsault is a serious variety in South Africa. Very fine, expressive and pure with lovely refined red and black cherries, and a lovely floral perfume. There's some tautness to the palate, but also a bit of silky texture. Purity and finesse are the hallmarks of this super-elegant red wine. 96/100"""

About Kinnegar

Kinnegar Wines was born almost by accident and been growing organically since.

In 1998, I was in the midde of a two year diploma course with the London Wine & Spirits Trust when an opportunity came up to visit South Africa's Western Cape. Naturally, I was keen to avail of the opportunity to learn more about viticulture and winemaking in South Africa.

We had an excellent guide who brought us to a number of the Cape's leading estates including Thelema and De Trafford where we had in depth vineyard and cellars tours. At the end of the day, I wanted to take back some of the wonderful wines we had tasted for our own use. It was not possible to take two or three cases of wine with us on our flight and shipping such a small quantity was more than the cost of wines. So I had the mad idea of shipping a pallet! Clearly, I had to start selling these wines and so began Kinnegar Wines. Ashford Castle took many of the wines and continue to list them and newer arrivals ever since.
