The 2011 Old Vine Series Treinspoor is pure Tinta Barocca from a parcel to the west of Malmesbury that was planted in 1974. It has a generous nose of mulberry, dates and a touch of cola on the wonderful defined bouquet that unfurls with each swirl of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fresh acidity, pixilated red fruits that dance on the tongue, with hints of cola and salted liquorice towards the bright, effervescent finish. This is simple delicious, although I might be less inclined to age this compared to other Old Vine Series wines.
