Reserve Syrah 2019
(6 x 750ML bottles)

R 1,500.00

Harvested from the lovely vineyards of Elim on soils varying from shale, gravel and Ferricrete also known as Koffieklip, minimal intervention throughout the winemaking process created a beautiful medium-bodied red. The 2019 Syrah is a great example of cool-climate Syrah and a great counterpoint to the more commonly found warm-climate Syrah in South Africa. After de-stemming the wine fermented naturally in open-top fermenters and benefitted from daily punch-downs. The wine then spent 11 months in new and older French oak and was bottled in December 2019. The wine was made in a natural way, with only sulphur additions.

Notes of spice and juicy red fruit, all neatly integrated with the subtle oak nuances. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, a lovely saline/ spicy thread throughout this Syrah that lends energy and tension towards the precise and detailed finish. This is a superb, sophisticated and nuanced Syrah that should age with style.
