2019 Scions of Sinai Gramadoelas Grenache Bl

Young vines here - planted in 2009 - on the Klein Karoo borders of the far eastern reaches of Cape winegrowing. Even the name Gramadoelas is slang for the middle of nowhere. It`s 100% Grenache Blanc grown on schist and shale. Grenache Blanc can be a touch flabby in the wrong place and hands but this has plenty of freshness to cut the yellow citrus and tree fruit; and an old fashioned 12% alcohol. (CW 24/07/20)

Tim Atkin MW

"Keeping it gentle in the cellar" is Bernhard Bredell`s mantra, which is wise given the quality of his fruit sources. Incredibly focused and concentrated for a wine with a mere 12% of alcohol, this Grenache Blanc from the Klein Karoo is stony, mealy and refreshing, with a hint of oak spice and a long, pithy finish. Drink 2021-25. 92 points
