The Sijnn Story
Between the hamlet of Malgas and Cape Infanta, at the mouth of the Breede River - called Sijnn by the Khoisan, lies the most extreme vineyards in the Western Cape. With complex soils of mainly sandstone and pebbles in fine loamy sand and clay, the terroir lends itself to produce fine aromatic wines. All the vines are grown as bush vines and grows in a natural way adapting to their rocky environment. High quality warm climate varieties are grown in a cooler climate for greater complexity and elegance where harvesting and sorting gets done by hand with minimum fungicide sprays and indigenous yeast ferments are used. The main varieties are blended to create complex and balanced wines, with more recently the focus being on single varietals.
