A beautiful wine with aromas of dark chocolate, red berry fruit and hints of savoury undertones. The palate is elegant with a silky texture balanced with lovely natural acidity. The finish is long and refreshing.

Farmed dry-land, thus not irrigated. All the vines are old bush vines between 15-50 years old. There are 9 different Syrah vineyards on the farm; this wine is a selection of 3 different vineyard sites. All the vineyards consist of “Lammershoek decomposed granite” with varying amounts of water being allowed through the different clay types. The grapes were handpicked early morning and cooled overnight. A very rough grape sorting was done to remove any over/under-ripe grapes or leaves from the fermentation tank. Partially de-stemmed or left to ferment as a whole bunch. All these different blocks and fermentation techniques were aged separately in a combination of concrete tanks, wooden foudres and old barrels for 11 months before careful blending and bottling.
