Alheit Vineyards Flotsam & Jetsam Cinsault Stalwart 2017
This wine is made from dry farmed bushvine parcels with an average age of around 240 years divided by 6. We tend to pick Cinsault relatively early. Up until now we’ve always used 100% whole cluster fermentation, with very gentle extraction work, if any. This philosophy accounts for the wines being quite “light and bright”. Over-ripe and over-extracted Cinsault can be lead-footed and syrupy. Maturation in neutral oak and in tank. Flotsam & Jetsam wines are made in a simple way from fantastic vineyards. No fuss. Sometimes wine just needs to be wine. Stop naming fruits. Say “loganberry” and this wine will literally slap you. That’s how they made it. For normal levels of enjoyment, pour it in your glass and drink it. To ramp it up, pour it on your friends, pets and house plants. In a nutshell, their aim is to vinify extraordinary Cape vineyards. In doing this, they hope to find the voice of the land.
