'The idea behind having two Syrahs is to represent the two major soil types prevalent at Gabriëlskloof. Our sandstone vineyards produce a Syrah that is elegant and aromatic while the heavier shale soils offer fruit concentration and depth.' – Peter-Allan Finlayson, Winemaker

'This used to be a single vineyard wine but now hails from four blocks on the same slope, all on sandstone. Picked a week before the shale Syrah because of the heat of the soils, it's a grippy, intense, savoury wine with blackberry and raspberry fruit, some lavender, white pepper and pine, lovely minerality and subtle, nuanced oak. Drink 2023-30' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 95/100

'Violets and pomegranate lead to a light, peaty reduction and sweet spices like sumac and cinnamon for an intense nose. The palate is silky and opulent, with hints of dark chocolate and a waxy grip that works alongside fresh acidity to add tension and structure. Will improve beyond 2025 to 2030.' - Peter-Allen Finlayson, Winemaker
