Sijnn Wines, the first winery in the new ward of Malgas making premium red wines following traditional winemaking methods. When David and Rita Trafford visited the Malgas region for the first time in 2000, they were blown away with the incredible soils specifically in the Lemoentuin area and immediately set about finding a suitable property to purchase. Most of the Sijnn vineyards are based on soils with a combination of these alluvial deposits on the Bokkeverd shale base – balancing intensity and structure with aromatic complexity and finesse. These very poor, complex soils encourage a deep root system, and low growth and low yield giving rise to intense, complex wines of great individual character.
