Cohesive and medium in body, this is a very elegant syrah with aromas of boysenberries and dark plums, and an underlying minerality. Nice fresh acidity and fine tannins this wine is a value. Pair with lamb, beef, game.

This small production winery (6000 cases total) makes handmade wines of exceptional quality in the French tradition. This Syrah is rich, very smooth, supple and elegant, with aromas and flavors of rich plum and blackberry. It sees 22 months in French oak and has fine, pretty tannins. It has a nice hint of minerality and good natural acidity. This wine has a smoothness and cohesion that is remarkable - it drinks easy and tastes delicious but there is still enough depth and complexity to keep one interested from start to finish. And another a great South African value for the money.

This wine is a blend of grapes from two different vineyards located at two different elevations. The higher elevation vineyard on decomposed granite a more elegant wine with softer tannins, while the lower vineyard is rockier producing a wine that is denser, fruitier, and more tannic. All the grapes for this wine were hand harvested, with a small percentage - 5% - whole bunch fermented. It received 22 months of barrel aging of mostly 2nd fill 300-litre French oak.

Cohesive and medium in body, this is a very elegant syrah with aromas of boysenberries and dark plums, and an underlying minerality. Nice fresh acidity and fine tannins this wine is a value. Pair with lamb, beef, game.
