An exciting new vineyard between the tiny hamlet of Malagas and Cape Infanta, at the mouth of the Breede River – called Sijnn by the original Khoisan inhabitants. Perched on a plateau of slate and rolled stones, about 15km from the southern oceans of Africa. The wines were previously made by the De Trafford team in Stellenbosch, but a winery has been built at the vineyard in time for the 2015 harvest.
"Made with fruit from young bush vines out in the wilds of Malgas, close to the mouth of the Breede River, this is an excellent counterpoint to the world-class red. Stony, bready and refined, with green apple, pear and peach skin flavours, racy minerality and some tannic structure from partial skin contact." Tim Atkins (93/100 points)
