Greg Sherwood (MW) rated at the Old Vine Project tasting held in London, June 2017 – 95/100 “Naude Old Vine Cinsault 2015 – Altogether more youthful, taut and exotic than the 2014. Shows complex layers of lychee, rose petals, fleshy yellow fruits, raspberry, and bramble berry fruit with a pronounced granitic mineral accent underpinned by chalky tannins. Plenty of structure and intensity. An impressive wine in its youth.” – Greg Sherwood MW, UK 2016 “The 2014 made waves on the Cinsault scene with its broad shoulders and powerful guise. The 2015 is a touch brighter and slightly leaner, sitting at just 12% alcohol. Matured in old oak and made very naturally, it delivers a host of crunchy fruits along with a crystalline freshness and fine texture. It will need a few years to show its best, with the concentration on the back palate suggesting that it may last for a decade or more.” – Wine Cellar
