About this Item

2014 - 2015 Old Vine Cinsault
6 (2 x 3) 750ml

Naudé Wines is the culmination of a journey that began more than 30 years ago. Since the first harvest, Ian Naudé has worked all over the world, hoping to craft wines that tell a story of time and place.

'I love the diversity we have in South Africa. Not just of the people, but the soils, the microclimates, and the wine varietals that thrive under their own unique conditions. I’m fortunate to have been introduced to a few of these vineyards, and work with some of the wonderful grapes that they produce, many of these from certified old vines. The grapes on these vines are storied, complex and unique. Each year they represent something different – whatever nature allows them – and with any luck, I don’t get in the way.' - Ian Naude, Winemaker

Critics Ratings

2014 - 'Slightly earthy, rusty notes only enhance the appeal and encourage further taste consideration of silky smooth 2014, youthful yet poised, light bodied yet intensely redolent of cranberries, Morello cherries and wild strawberries, subtly spiced. 10% new oak.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2016, 4.5*

‘Another Ian Naudé wine that has improved with extra time in bottle. This is pale, floral and appealing, with subtle summer pudding fruit sweetness, bright acidity and just a hint of tannin.’ - Tim Atkin, SA Special Report 2016, 92/100

2015 - ‘Single Darling vineyard, 2015 follows maiden 2014 (94 pts) in red fruit intensity, yet also earthy, scrubby, with textured savouriness. Elegant, with nothing missing, has sleek musculature. As the winemaker says: ‘Young at heart with an old soul.'’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2018, 4.5* (93/100)
