An Alsace winemaker, Julien Schaal fell in love with South Africa while working the 2003 harvest in Hermanus. Returning the following year he cemented his friendship with Gordon Newton Johnson owner of the Newton Johnson vineyards in the Hemel-en Aarde Valley. After a late night, and a few of the obligatory brandies, he was able to persuade him to help him start a new venture. Taking what little money he had saved he invested everything in grapes and barrels and made some wine. His first vintage in 2005 consisted of just a few barrels of Chardonnay and Syrah.

The Syrah grapes come exclusively from Walker Bay vineyards. Walker bay has a Mediterranean climate, which means longer growing seasons with moderate to warm temperatures.

Tasting notes:
'The nose is quite heady with top notes of flowers and fynbos before black berries and pepper. The palate is marked by a good core of fruit, fresh acidty and crunchy tannins – impressive depth while still presenting as savoury' – Winemag Syrah Report 2019, 93/100

'We pursued a single goal: making Syrah with voluptuous fruit that reflect Terroir and Passion. Syrah African Dream detaches itself from the standard of South Africa. Rich and well-balanced, this wine possesses a perfume of mixed spice and a palate of soft blackberry flavours.' – Winemaker
