Tasting Notes:

This wine displays aromatics of Fynbos with herbaceous whiffs, extending to plum and dark fruit characteristics on the nose. Hints of lavender presents interesting floral notes. This wine is a bold, structured and powerful wine yet simultaneously refined. Supple oak tannin provides a frame for the plum fruit flavour and complements the light, peppery spice lift. The palate is savoury and appealing with a velvety texture from the well-judged seamless oak integration. It is layered and complex with a long defined finish.

The grapes for the Syrah are all from vineyards located on our Riebeeksrivier farm in the Swartland.  Fermentation took place in a combination of Italian concrete and Stainless steel tanks, with each fermentation vessel contributing to the finesse and fruit evident in this wine.  The wine was aged in 225L, French oak barrels for approximately 10 to 12moths.  No new oak was used for aging this wine.
