The Loggerenberg Geronimo Cinsault represents four barrels from two parcels of Cinsault, half from 30 year old vines on the Bredell farm in Faure, with the balance from 45 year old vines on Jacobsdal in Polkadraai. Total production 10 barrels.
“The 2016 Geronimo is pure Cinsault that is matured naturally in used oak. It has a ‘flighty’ bouquet with perfumed dark cherries and crushed strawberry that appears to gain more intensity with aeration. The palate is well balanced with ripe red cherry and cranberry notes, gaining more and more weight in the mouth as it opens, and dealing out a superb saline tang on the aftertaste. Don’t be afraid to give this a 30-60 minute decant.” Neal Martin, Wine Advocate 91/100
