2018 Savage Follow the Line, Western Cape

Delicate on the nose, with wild strawberries and plenty of pepper, this is an outstanding Cinsault from Duncan Savage. All savoury and refined on the finish, it’s a wine that has you reaching for another glass.

TASTING NOTES

"The story is the parcel," says Duncan Savage about this superb Darling Cinsault blended with 11% Syrah. With 50% whole bunches adding extra texture and perfume, this is a superb, rose petal, cherry stone and raspberry-like red with understated oak, fine tannins and superb palate length.
