Welbedacht Bakleiblok Cinsault 2022 Wellington


In stock

SKU: 33175 Categories: ,


We have bagged a parcel of the Bakleiblok Cinsault 2022 from this corner of his Wellbedacht Farm. Planted over 30 years ago but rather neglected, these old vines have been nurtured and encouraged to give a mid weight, refreshing, raspberry and red plum fruited beauty. Bakleiblok, or 'fight block', is so named as there is more than one vineyard worker claiming to have done all the hard work in reclaiming this wonderful parcel!
