Follow the Line is produced from dry farm bush vines grown on one property in Darling. This wine is dedicated to the loving memory of a good mate, Boetie van Reenan, who tragically lost his life far too young. This Cinsault was planted the year Boetie van Reenan was born and he spent years working the vines and soil. Long may his spirit live on in the wines of the wonderful farm.
From the beautiful 36 year old South-east facing Cinsault vineyards in Darling, the fruit was early picked and fermented using 50% whole bunch clusters. Malolactic fermentation was carried out in 500 litre French oak barrels with a further 9 months of ageing in large 1500 and 2000 litre foudre.
The youthful red plum coloured Cinsault is aromatically charged, brimming with fresh violets, cherry blossom, rose water, lychee skins, sun dried cranberries, potpourri and an exotic touch of Turkish Delight.This is an exceptional mouth-watering delight. Drink from release but keep some in the cellar for 5-8 years.
