Quick Facts

130 years old (!), gnarly Cinsault vines create this individual wine, which we believe sets a new standard for the variety!

The Wine’s Story

After a devastating frost at Clos Saron in 2011, Gideon decided to source fruit elsewhere, in order to produce “something”. The result was highly successful as he started a collaboration with organic Lodi grower Markus Bokisch. There are actually three different Cinsaults in the Clos Saron range these, and we’ve chosen the foot-stomped, wildly aromatic Out of the Blue as our Brix Wine pick.
