A totally complete wine, Sijnn’s flagship red from the South African outpost of Malgas, is an incredibly drinkable wine in 2016 that shares many a semblance with a good quality Saint Joseph.
Syrah dominant, with Touriga Nacional, Trincadeira, Mourvèdre and a nominal amount of Cabernet Sauvignon completing the unusual blend, it’s expressive from opening and benefits from a two hour decant. Dark, brooding and complex, with an iron core and some bright cherry acidity, it’s a virile wine with good length and a great accompaniment to beef. I’m lucky to have two more bottles and will excitedly try another in a few years’ time.
PS. Sorry for the unwarranted pic of my food but this was last week and I’ve since ditched the bottle. — 2 years ago
Very taut - even after an hour of decanting. There is plenty of raw potential here but at this point in its evolution it is quite unforthcoming. Probably needs at least another five years or so to become more harmonious and enjoyable. — 5 years ago
@Delectable- this is the Saignee red blend. 2014 barrel fermented. 60 Mourvèdre 20 Shiraz 20 Touriga Nacional. Light red. Body wise drinks a bit like a Russian River Pinot. Nutty strawberries and cream. Very unique. Outstanding wine. — 7 years ago
Delicious! Measured spice with soft woody tannins. I can see why Platter gave it 5 stars. — 10 years ago
