Meinert Synchronicity 2016

Meinert Synchronicity 2016


Synchronicity is our flagship wine, the annual reflection of this prime Devon Valley site. We select the best batches of each of our varietals and blend according to the strengths of each vintage, seeking complexity and balance. The vines grow in our red-brown deep rich Hutton soils, and are between 10 (Cabernet franc) to 25 years old and receive no irrigation. Fermented with natural yeasts and aged separately in batches in mostly new French oak for twelve months. After a long and meticulous tasting to ensure only the best components are included in this cuvee, the individual wines are blended and matured for a further 18 months in 100% new French oak barriques. The wine undergoes a light filtration prior to bottling and thereafter is matured in bottle until it is deemed market ready.

Tasting Notes

The Synchronicity may be considered a benchmark in its class, epitomizing the unique terroir of Devon Valley in Stellenbosch. The 2016 follows on the great vintage of 2013 & 2015 (no Synchronicity 2014 was made) and reflects the virtues of one of South Africa’s greatest vintages offering layered red, black and purple fruit with subtle savory nuance starting to develop. This dense and well-structured wine offers impeccable maturation potential, quite easily for the next 15 – 20 years. One is cautioned not to choose a favourite child, but this is a near impossible task when a wine such as the Synchronicity is included in one’s portfolio.
