The Syrah 2018 is made from Elgin and Simondium grapes, the perfect example of how fruit from two different terroirs can harmonise to create a beautiful wine showcasing the best of both regions.
This appealing Syrah is an elegant wine with supple fruit anddark spices. The grapes were picked by hand, the selected blocks fermented separately and only blended after maturation.
The grapes was harvested at optimal ripeness and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The Elgin and Simonsberg component are vinified separately. Pumpovers was done 3 times a day so ensure colour and tannin extraction. The wine spent 16 month in French oak barrels for maturation and was bottled under stelvin and cork closure.
The Shiraz grapes from Simonsberg-Paarl showcases violet and plums, whilst the Elgin grapes brings in a darker character with spicy notes and black pepper. Smooth tannins on the palate confirms the promise of this elegant wine. Velvet textured layers follows through to a juicy mouth-feel.
