Bernhard Bredell grew up in a wine farming family, on their farm, Helderzicht, in the Lower Helderberg region of Stellenbosch. Here the Bredells had been farming wine for 7 generations (over 160 years) and have essentially been responsible for developing this region, starting with Peter Bredell’s arrival here in the 1850’s and then passing it all down to his descendants.

Today Scions of Sinai Wines mainly focus on curating these uniquely located vineyards of the Lower Helderberg region around a granite hill colloquially known as “Sinai Hill” – pure wines from a few specially selected dry farmed bush vine vineyards on decomposed granite. Bernard favors a chemical-free approach in the vineyards and the winery.

Tasting Note: (from the winery)
Keeping it gentle in the cellar. All grapes are handpicked in small lugboxes. A blend between separate fermentations, all by natural occurring yeast from the vineyard itself. Partial wholebunch fermentations with submerged caps. Aged on its fine lees for 11 months in older 225 L and 400 L barrels. No new oak.
Heldervallei combines concentrated tense red berry fruit with upfront perfume, rose petals, wild cherries, blackcurrant and red plum, and a twist of tarragon and rosemary before finishing wonderfully fresh and clean. Tight dry grip on finish as is expected from this variety, making this a serious Cinsault with loads of concentration and a must try for lovers of South African wines.

This is a Dry, Medium bodied wine with High acidity and Medium- tannin. It is Medium in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
