The thing about owning a mountain is the fact that it’s a piece of the earth’s mantle. Wildeberg in Franschhoek is belittlingly dramatic in scale and it is this scale that the winemakers try to apply to this small, pretty wine. The label pays homage to the unique, ever-shifting soils and slopes of South Africa’s Cape mountains, formed over aeons of geological time. It illustrates the dry-grown, bush-vines of the Cinsault cultivar farmed here, where their roots dig deep into the Earth's layers foraging for sustenance in these harsh conditions.

Mantlepiece Cinsault wine is a deep yet pretty Cinsault being generous of fruit yet full of life. The nose is alluringly aromatic with heady aromas of fresh damsons, plum sauce, hoi sin and star anise. The palate reflects these with its bright, fresh and gently textural notes that marry together with delicate finesse. Enjoy with any foods driven by hoisin and plum sauce flavours, duck, goose etc.
