Notes

85% Syrah and 15% Grenache

This wine always offers staggering value. The Syrah and a splash of Grenache are sourced from the Swartland. All grapes are carefully nurtured and selected, to ensure that only the best makes it to bottle. All TSW wines tend to show an underlying elegance and gracefulness.

Tasting notes:
'The 2016 TSW Syrah was naturally fermented in open-top fermenters and matured in 500-liter French barriques. It has a very succinct bouquet of brambly red berry fruit, sage, bay leaf and a touch of fennel. The palate is well balanced, with a lightly spiced, quite peppery opening. There is an irresistible sense of energy about this Syrah, and it is beautifully sculpted on the elegant yet long finish. Superb!' – Neal Martin Report 2018, 93/100

'Beautifully ripe and fresh black and red fruits on the nose accompanied by some aromatic spice - black pepper and cardamom - with some dust and warm earth undertones. On the palate, the fruit is persistent and abundant. Lovely concentration without being overly “heavy”. The fine-grained tannin keeps building in the mouth and with the balanced acid provides a classy framework for the pure red fruit to express itself. A beautiful wine.' – Winemaker

Winemakers notes:
Hand-picked from 17-year-old dryland vines on Swartland schist soils. 100% de-stemmed & fermented in open-top fermenters. Elevage took place in 500L French oak puncheons for 11 months.
