This red blend is predominantly Cinsault with a light seasoning of Pinotage, grown in the Lower Helderberg area. It is an immensely juicy and moreish expression, fit to bursting with ripe, juicy red berries. If you like a crunchier, lighter style of wine this will definitely hit the spot.

'Nomadis' celebrates two grapes that form an integral part of Stellenbosh's winemaking heritage; Pinotage and Cinsault. It is a blend that relies on creating harmony between the two. Winemaker Bernhard explains: “Cinsault is the father and Pinotage is the son – on a light soil Cinsault can be one dimensional, Pinotage adds texture”.

95% Cinsault, 5% Pinotage. Supple, elegant and fine with red cherry and strawberry fruit. Gentle with a hint of ginger in the background. A really elegant style with good purity.

About Scions of Sinai

Bernhard Bredell grew up on his family farm in the Lower Helderberg, southeast of Stellenbosch, where his family have been farming grapes for seven generations. He set up Scions of Sinai in 2016 after studying oenology, viticulture and soil sciences at the University of Stellenbosch, and working on vineyards in France and Spain. The name reflects this commitment to both land and family: a scion having the dual meaning of a young vine shoot and a generational descendant.

The project is based around a granite outcrop colloquially known as Sinai Hill, and his goal is to make pure authentic wines from dry-farmed bush vines grown here. Many of the vineyards he works with were planted in the late ’60s to mid ’70s by Koos and Pieter Bredell. Bernhard is low-intervention in the cellar - slow fermentation in open-top vats, ageing in old oak, no manipulations to the juice or wines and no filtration. His goal is an expression of a place, a vineyard, its history and its soil. “I’m not trying to be weird or funky – for me what’s most important is to have that line between vineyard and glass as uncompromised as possible,”
