Press review:

Jancis Robinson:“Smoky nose, a touch of rubber – as with all Alex Milner’s Cinsaults, decant for several hours beforehand. Glowing cherry roundness and sweetness, a ripeness and gentle plumpness which can’t be found on his Cinsaults from Swartland, Simonsberg or Stellenbosch. Which is not to say that this is voluptuous by South African standards. It has a floating burgundian elegance – in fact so Pinot Noir-like that I’d love to throw this into a blind tasting. The almost invisible tannins define the fruit but are so much part of it that it’s as if they’ve been etched into it with a diamond tip. The Darling Cinsault, more than the others, has a seam of graphite steeliness, a frisson of petrichor minerality that pulls the wine in tight towards its centre and in to a long determined focus right to the end. Stunning. Very Very Good Value (TC). 13.5%.” 18 points
