It has a range of flavours, from herbs, faint black pepper, red and black berry, and core of dark fruits.
Aging potential of 10 years.
Establishing this vineyard on the ancient rocky riverbed of the Breede River, dating back almost 14milion years, was not an easy task, but with dedicated labour this wine resulted in a very terroir driven Syrah. Uniquely Swellendam.
Constantly 50% lower temperatures during the night as during the day.
Harvested at optimum ripeness, this Syrah was naturally fermented on its skin and 20% whole bunch for 10days, left on its skin till malolactic fermentation was done and racked into 300lt barrels for 24months.
☕ Serving suggestion: Pork belly, rack of lamb or with a decedent dark chocolate dessert.
