Erika O Flabbergast
Cinsault
2018

The name alludes to the astonishing versatility of this rewarding cultivar. Once the country’s most planted grape, this workhorse varietal is experiencing a remarkable resurgence, providing a welcome counterpoint to wines of weight and power.

A glorious, fragrant, fresh Cinsault from non-irrigated old bush vines, matured in older oak and concrete. The nose is fleshy and ripe with sweet strawberry compote, red fruits and sour cherries. Subtle hints of black olives and spice add extra intrigue. The palate delivers a fresh fruited, bright vibrancy, discreet tannins and a pure and focused finish. This is a delightful all-rounder, ‘any time’ wine. Serves lightly chilled.
