Due to the worst wind damage we've experienced in the Blaauwklip valley in Stellenbosch during the 2013 growing season which reduced our crops by half, we sourced some Syrah from 3 exceptional vineyards in the cooler Overberg or Cape South Coast region.
Medium deep, purple red colour. Lovely chalky, redcurrant and red cherry fruit on nose with mineral, white pepper and aniseed notes. Persistent smooth chalky dry tannins on the palate with the full range of flavours found on the nose coming through. Enjoy now in its fresh youthfulness, but should also grow and gain complexity over a few years. Ideal between 2016 and 2023. Try with subtle meat dishes such as pork loin and veal or parmesan crusted tender stemmed broccoli.
