The Horsemen Red Rider Carignan 2019

R224.00

(R1,344.00 for 6 x 750ml)

The Carignan is from an area called Soutdam (meaning ‘salt dam’ in Afrikaans), located about 15kms away from Yzerfontein. The story goes that during the drought, a lot of the salt came up into the soil as the water evaporated, which has resulted in an interesting salinity in the wine.

“There’s not a lot of bushvine Carignan currently available in South Africa. The main reason I chose the Soutdam site is because I know Carignan as ‘spice’, and in order to achieve that spice, it needs a diurnal shift between hot day and cool night temperatures," explains Jaco. "As the site is near Yzerfontein, this vineyard is quite close to the ocean, and it almost feels like an aircon gets switched on every afternoon around 2pm, which is perfect to cool the vines down,” he ends.

This Carignan was 100% whole bunch fermented with only two 500l barriques produced.
