'An exotic experience which shifts your mind to another place. Cassis, current, blackberry and cherry. White pepper, ground herbs and the strong floral perfume of crushed violets. Light and elegant but structured with a fresh acidity. To experience the best this wine has to offer, decanting is suggested.' – Samantha O'Keefe, Winemaker

Tasting notes on the 2017 vintage:
'The 2017 Syrah continues to serve as one of the Cape's finest expressions of the variety. Gorgeous scents of raspberry, strawberry, Earl Grey tea and pomegranate seeds feature on the detailed nose; then the palate is lithe and silky, with perhaps more garrigue notes coming through with bottle age. Divine. Drink 2022-2045.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 95/100 (Apr 2021)

'Greyton and Elgin are the joint sources of this delicious Syrah from one of the best exponents of the grape in South Africa. Explosively aromatic with violet and rose petal perfume, red cherry and raspberry fruit, subtle oak and some underlying grip from 50% whole bunches. Wonderfully, lip-smackingly drinkable. Drink 2020-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 94/100

'A combination of Elign and Greyton grapes. 40% wholebunch fermentation. Red and black fruit, pepper and some reduction on the nose. Full and relatively luscious in the mouth with fine tannins. Alcohol: 14%.' – Christian Eedes, WineMag.co.za, 90/100

'Sweet red fruit, juicy and pert with soft tannin and a little earthy note on the finish with lovely snappy tannin. Superb quality with dignified, classic balance.' – Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20
