Sijnn 2010

/TKIN0045

This very exciting red blend from a new and remote vineyard area has been lauded by Jancis Robinson & many others. Southern Rhone varietals Shiraz & Mourvedre combine with the Portuguese Touriga Nacional & Trincadeira and a dash of Cabernet Sauvignon to create a big, broad silky wine with layers of complexity and deep minerality from the very poor stony soils. This is a real new star and only in its fourth vintage. Drinking beautifully but will continue to evolve if you can keep it. James Molesworth of Wine Spectator says "There are few wines I would push people to seek out - I like to point to quality and then let consumers find what style of wine they enjoy drinking. In this case though, I think it's important for anyone who appreciates the efforts that go into making wine to try and track down a few bottles of Sijnn.There are few projects that epitomize such a soulful, pioneering approach to winemaking.

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.
