'I don’t like to be prescriptive about taste as I think every occasion and palate bring their own nuances but, for me: Stellenbosch lends grip and florals; Elgin displays a more luxurious, spicy plumminess; and Darling brings an austere and savoury edge to the blend. Collectively I believe they achieve the objective of showcasing just how beautifully Syrah thrives in South Africa’s cooler Cape microclimates.' – Sam Lambson, Winemaker

Winemaker's notes:
Exploring the diversity of Syrah planted in cool micro-climates of the Cape is my passion and this label represents another step in my never-ending search to find the best sites in the Winelands. Working closely with farmers who share my passions for Syrah and precision viticulture, the idea is provide a snap-shot of Cape Syrah in a given year and to fuse the results in a bottle. In other words, to Connect The Dots.

In 2019, the first vintage of Connect The Dots came from parcels in Stellenbosch and Elgin. In 2020, sees a return to the same districts and this blend includes fruit from the Granite soils of Stellenbosch’s Polkadraai and Helderberg, a new Table Mountain Sandstone parcel in Elgin and, for the first time, parcels in the iron-rich clay soil of Darling.

Each of the sites brings something distinct to the blend and it is always fascinating to see what unfolds when nature takes the lead.
