About this Item

Colourblind Cabernet Sauvignon, 2016
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

Charla Bosman (née Haasbroek), as far-flung Sijnn's winemaker for almost a decade, has had access to the estate's unique and varied fruit and, since 2016, crafted parcels of characterful and critically acclaimed wine for her own account. The newcomer featured here is the first blended wine we've tasted from her boutique venture.

The fruit comes from the Sijnn vineyards planted atop large, red river stones overlying Bokkeveld shale. The vines are untrellised; they grow as bush vines. In the cellar, her ethos is simple: native yeast fermentations, lees aging, no filtration, and manual bottling and labeling.

Critics Ratings

‘Beguiling 2016 an unusual example of cab in its lean, light, elegant freshness (more reminiscent of a Loire cab franc than a SA cab perhaps). Yet full of flavour, with something wild, even rustic, & a stony undercurrent. Already all in vital balance, promising complexity.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2018, 4.5*
