‘A Sijnn retrospective: tasting the past and present of this remarkable vineyard in Malgas, South Africa’

Dr. Jamie Goode visited the Sijnn Estate in Malgas for a tasting and lunch to celebrate the estate’s 20 year anniversary. “The first few years of being here must have been difficult,” writes Goode. “The Afrikaans farmers who were their neighbours would have been very puzzled by vines going into the ground. The closest winery is 100 km away in either Robertson or Agulhas. They are doing something unique in an area that is undiscovered.” Read more for notes on the vertical tastings.
