Savage Follow the Line Red, Western Cape, South Africa 2022

1 in stock

Cinsault from a 41 year old dry farmed bush vine vineyard in Darling. The vines are grown in decomposed granite on a south facing slope which gets battered by the prevailing south east wind off the cold Atlantic. This vineyard has been worked since 2011 and the level of consistency and purity never ceases to amaze.

Grapes are meticulously sorted in both vineyard and winery, moreso in 2022 due to the extreme vintage. 20% of the fruit wasdiscarded to ensure only the best bunches were processed. 50%whole bunch spontaneous fermentation with gentle extraction and2 weeks on the skins. Basket pressing is followed by a year in older foudre, amphora and old 500L barrels before bottling.

Follow the Line always displays aromatic purity, strawberries, cherries, rose petals and violets. The 2022 vintage showcases all of this with a little more texture and richness courtesy of the warmer vintage. The vines adapted incredibly to the challenges and have yielded an extremely complex wine with the characteristic freshness of granitic soils. Follow the Line drinks beautifully young but will age well up to 10 years.
