Congratulations Charla Hasbroek for winning Young Winemaker of the year 2022 with Tim Atkin.
This unique and engaging wine is a blend of high-quality low-yielding bush vine Chenin Blanc 81% | Verdelho 8% | Viognier 7% | Roussanne 4%
A precious colour of gold. Exotic, yet focused, with peach, apricot and yellow apple flavours. Subtle wood, and a bright tangy finish. Beautiful mandarin, orange saline threads on the palate, followed by a very fine acidity. Lovely peach pith, apricots and nuttiness. It is rather textured and expresses more minerality than fruit. A gentle honeysuckle and beeswax profile that lingers.
Paired best with most rich dishes ranging from Risotto to Fish and even good with Lamb.
ANALYSIS: ALC 14% | SG 1,7 g/ℓ | TA 6,8 g/ℓ | pH 3,27

Sijnn is a true unicorn within the Cape Winelands. Located in Malgas it’s a beautiful pioneering wine estate in the middle of nowhere, at the end of a long, dusty, bumpy road at the Southern tip of Africa.
At Sijnn, everything they do revolves around their unique location and terroir. They believe in natural farming and natural winemaking, and focus their skills on blending Mediterranean-style varieties that are best suited to their climate and soils.
