    Mount Abora "Saffraan" '16

    Swartland

    Mount Abora "Saffraan" '16

    The South African red wine drinking culture was largely built on Cinsault, a high-production grape variety which has been grown at the Cape since the 1880s. A lot of these old vines are today to be found in the Swartland as low-yielding, non-irrigated bush vines.

    Mount Abora was created with the desire to make a complex Cinsault that could rival the elegant Pinot noir wines of cooler climate regions. Winemaker Johan Meyer coaxes just enough natural grape flavours from the juice to complement the underlying aromas of sea and earth, while ensuring a relatively low level of alcohol. “Saffraan” was matured in tank as well as some older 300-liter French oak barrels for nine months. It’s best savored on its own, but when hunger strikes enjoy it with salmon or with peppered watermelon salads. (Largely adapted from the producer’s notes)

    Serve this one with a light chill and make it one of your go-to summer reds!
