Tim Atkin über: Ouwingerdreeks Old Vine Series Treinspoor

-- Tim Atkin: Treinspoor comes from a vineyard close to the railway line on the Darling side of the Swartland.

Galloni über: Ouwingerdreeks Old Vine Series Treinspoor

-- Galloni: The 2018 Treinspoor is pure Tinta Barocca from Swartland aged in old foudres. Its perfumed bouquet is much more floral than the Pofadder, with incense and pressed iris flower infusing the red berry fruit, and displays wonderful energy and precision. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity and a crisp, quite saline finish that lingers long in the mouth. I noticed it tightening up in the glass, and maybe this will shut down for a while, so drink soon or cellar for several years. 95+/100
