About Sijnn

A true unicorn within the Cape's vinous heartlands, Sijnn (pron. “sane”) is the pioneering Malgas estate. Responsible in no small measure for the birth, rise and blossoming of this South African wine district, this estate occupies "one of the most amazing new terroirs in the Cape", according to the world's foremost South African wine authority, Tim Atkin MW.

 

Established in 2004 by acclaimed Stellenbosch winemaker David Trafford and his partners, Sijnn is leading the way in the new wave of South African wine-making. Today, Sijnn has risen in stature. Leading the new wave of South African winemaking, Sijnn is ranked as a “Second Growth” in Atkin’s Southern Cape Classification.

 

Viniculture

Named for the Khoisan people who inhabited the area, their pioneering work focuses on bringing the strengths of Mediterranean grape varietals to the expressive terroir and warm maritime climate of the Malgas. Sijnn is completely dedicated to minimal intervention both in the vineyard and the winery, favouring natural bush vines over trellising. Critics around the world are sitting up and taking notice of this "soulful and pioneering" range.

Sijnn Malgas White 2017 (2x150cl)

Tim Atkin, MW (93)

More conventional than the Sijnn red, this is a three-way blend of Chenin Blanc, Viognier and Roussanne that sees a little skin contact before fermentation. Honeysuckle, fresh herb and citrus flavours reminded me of the Rhône Valley.
