We are delighted to offer you this exciting discovery from South Africa as the Basson family were one of the first families to plant Carignan there. At the age of 17, young Cobus Basson Read More...
was helping his father plant vines when a tractor overturned and rolled onto him, causing the loss of a leg. Blessed with a generous sense of humor, he has been affectionately known amongst local farmers as “Houtbeen” (Pegleg) Basson. This is a medium-bodied wine with sumptuous red and black fruits. The color is medium ruby with a bouquet of strawberry preserves, plum and mulberry, which is reflected on the palate. The finish is medium in length and quite pleasing, leaving you ready for more. Wine Spectator says of this wine, “Bright and very peppery, with bouncy tobacco and spice-infused fig fruit flavors. Lively finish.” Adored wine critic and author Jancis Robinson also writes of Pegleg as a successful expression of Carignan.

is bottled. The grapes are harvested then each varietal is separately fermented and barrel aged for 18 months. Doing this develops more complexity in each varietal and also allows for the very best blend to be assembled. The blend for this vintage is 49% Carignane, 19% Old Vine Petite Sirah, 18% Old Vine Zinfandel, 7% Old Vine Mataro, and 7% Alicante Bouschet.

Floral aromas of fresh violet and fruit notes of quince, cranberry apple, and cherry cola invigorate the senses and prepare the palate for flavors of bright red plum and raspberry liquor. Combined with silky tannins, and it’s mouthwatering acidity, this old vine blend is sure to maintain it’s reputation as a top selling wine under the Trinitas label.
