Tasting notes on the 2018 vintage:
'Solace comes from a warmer site on the neighbouring farm to Iona, which is why Syrah grows well there. Fermented with 12% whole bunches, this is savoury and firm, with assertive 18% new oak, good focus and layers of bramble and red berry fruit. Drink 2022-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 92/100

'Layers of bramble and red berry fruit, with spicy, peppery aromas. Energetic and lightly rich palate that emphasises floral element.' – Winemaker

Producer information In 1997, Andrew Gunn purchased the beautiful Geelbeksvlei farm located 420 meters above sea-level, overlooking the Elgin Valley. This apple and pear farm was no longer proving to be profitable, and so with the advantageous location of the farm, Andrew decided to plant vines and pursue winemaking. Its high altitude and close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean results in a cool mesoclimate which has a moderating influence and results in consistent quality.
