South Africa Die Plek Cinsault 2018 750ml
• Introduction 簡介
The name of this range comes from the early days of settlement in the Cape. The VOC (Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie) prohibited farmers from trading with anyone other than the ‘Compagnie’, but this lead to big unhappiness. Therefore, when the ‘vrijburgers’ and local tribesmen wanted to do business, they had to go to a secluded area in the mountain-range to trade without interference. This corner was where Stellenbosch Mountain and Helderberg ‘join’ and so it became known as ‘Konkelberg’.
• Terroir 風土
Rooted in the oldest viticulture soil in the world, it is made up of decomposed granite on the lower slopes of the Helderberg Mountain. This vineyard enjoyed the refreshingly cool breezes from False Bay (Atlantic Ocean) during the day and cool night air flowing down the mountain, resulting in even ripening of the berries and good natural acidity. The macro climate is maritime, with cold wet winters and dry, warm summers.
Die Plek Cinsault 2018 釀造過程：
Cinsault, or “Hermitage” as wine farmers like to call it, is a heritage cultivar from the Cape. The single vineyard bush vine dates back to 1974 and is meticulously cared for by hand. Due to its age, it renders naturally very low yields, while organic & biodynamic practices are employed with no use of pesticides, herbicides or chemicals.
仙梭（Cinsault），或葡萄酒農民喜歡稱之為的“Hermitage”，是開普敦的傳統品種。單一的葡萄園灌木藤蔓可以追溯到 1974 年，並經過手工精心護理。由於其年代久遠，自然產量非常低，而採用有機和生物動力實踐，不使用殺蟲劑、除草劑或化學品。
This wine is made naturally and in a biodynamic way by not making use of any commercial yeasts, enzymes or fining agents. It is further not filtered or cold stabilized and may therefore in time show harmless sediment. Die Plêk was matured in a combination of mature French oak barrels for 9 months and with proper cellaring, this wine will improve and continue to reward over the next 6-8 years.Lightly wooded, medium bodied, this wine greets you on the nose with aromatic floral notes which follow through with ripe strawberries, cherries, sweet spices, fine raspberry and tangy acidity with soft tannins.
這款酒採用生物動力法自然釀造，不使用任何商業酵母、酶或澄清劑。它還沒有經過過濾或冷穩定處理，因此可能及時顯示出無害的沉澱物。 Die Plêk 在成熟的法國橡木桶中陳釀 9 個月，經過適當的窖藏，這款酒將在接下來的 6-8 年內得到改善並繼續獲得回報。輕微的木香，中等酒體，這款酒散發出芳香的花香，伴隨著成熟的草莓、櫻桃、甜香料、精美的覆盆子和濃郁的酸度和柔和的單寧。
