Western Cape, South Africa

Gently compelling with aromas of the earth and stony minerality. The palate includes red fruits, cherries, a hint of spice and creamy refreshing acidity. This is pure, elegant, restrained Cinsault, light in body, intense in flavour.

Victorian naturalists and explorers to South Africa were fascinated by the zebra and gave it the Latin name Hippotigris, or Tiger Horse. Taken from vines in the Western Cape, these wines are a celebration of both South Africa's oft-forgotten ancient vines and its noblest steed.
