A wine of “remarkable individuality”, the Sijnn Malgas Red Blend 2017 is named one of Atkin’s “Red Blends of the Year 2020”. Symphonically composed of Syrah, Touriga Nacional, Mourvèdre, Trincadeira and Cabernet Sauvignon, these varietals both respond to and convey the maritime climate of Malgas, growing on poor soils with low yields. This wonderfully unique terroir imparts great character to the wine, giving rise to notes of “rosemary and lavender, meaty depths and fine oak” (TA). With exceptional “freshness and concentration”, a sensational score of 96 points from Tim Atkin MW conveys how remarkable this wine is.

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.
