Syrah 2019 (case of 6)

R780.00

The Syrah shows concentrated raspberry and black berry fruit, that opens to a floral perfume with white pepper and herbs on the nose. The palate has dense fruit intensity with a velvety mid palate, that finishes with a fine peppery tannin.

When to enjoy:
With a delicious meal to savour the intensity of this wine.

How to Serve:
At a pleasing 16 - 18° (not too cold and not our summer room temperature)

Our meal suggestions:
We’ve tried it with a few variations of lamb such as lamb loin chops spiced with salt, black pepper and rosemary, leg of lamb slow roasted, well salted, peppered and served with roast potatoes, sweet potatoes and spicy gravy. Oven roasted vegetables with rosemary and garlic could be a vegan alternative.

What about the grapes?
100% Syrah

And the vineyards (terroir):
South-Westerly facing slopes ranging in altitude from 230-250m above sea level on decomposed granite soils. The vines are trellised on a seven-wire hedge system and we yield approximately eight tons per hectare.

How was it made:
The grapes were harvested at full phenolic ripeness, resulting in beautiful fruit expression and soft elegant tannin. The fermentation temperature peaked at 28°C with regular pump-overs to ensure even extraction and 15% of the wine was whole bunch fermented. The wine was matured for 14 months in 500l French oak barrels, with 25% new oak.

Should this wine age / mature:
Definite aging ability in the right conditions – from 5 to 10 years.
