Tasting notes:
'Single vineyard Syrah from Stellenbosch, tight tannins, red berries, iodine and lavender. Very northern Rhone (St Joseph) style Syrah. Would decant, still a bit young but stunning fruit.' – Carsten Migliarina

Alc: 14% | RS: 1.3 g/L | TA: 5.5 g/L | PH: 3.53

Tasting notes on the previous 2015 vintage:
'10 weeks on the skins. 14 months in old oak, inoculated, unfined, unfiltered, destalked, destemmed, with initially whole berry cold fermentation in tank allowing malo on skins in tank. Pure Helderberg expression with delicious blackberry, iodine, coriander and lavender and subtle hints of fraise des bois. A medium bodied, classical old world European style wine with subtle restrained fruit, black berry salinity, some accessibility in young but embroidered with complex mineral pithy tannins and a fresh linear finish. Still taut, broody and tight, the finish will become naturally embellished with extra time in bottle. A great vintage and a very serious, “adults only” top shelf effort.' – Greg Sherwood MW, 94/100

'The 2015 Syrah underwent a nine-week maceration and was aged entirely in used wood. It has a perfumed bouquet of dark cherry, briar and light pressed flower scents, plus just a touch of raspberry preserve in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a fine bead of acidity, and harmonious in the mouth, displaying a lovely grainy texture toward the classically styled finish. This is a very well crafted Syrah.' – Neal Martin Report 2018, 92/100
