The Loggerenberg Geronimo Cinsaut is a blend from two parcels of Cinsaut. One vineyard was planted in 1978 and is situated in the Firgrove area in Stellenbosch. The other vineyard was planted in 1989 and is from the hills of Bottelary. The vineyard from the Firgrove area gives the wine its beautiful aromatics while the vineyards from the Bottelary hills gives the wine its great chalky tannin structure. These bush vines are dryland farmed. The soils are decomposed granite with under laying sandstone which gives this wine its elegance and finesse.
The grapes were 100% whole bunch fermented. All grapes were left to ferment naturally with one punch down performed daily. The wines underwent malolactic fermentation in barrel. The barrels were blended together after 9 months in old French oak barrels and bottled right after. The cinsaut is bottled earlier than our other red wines to maintain the crunchy fruit vibrancy unique to Cinsaut.
