Rall 2023

SA’s best value Syrah! – 97/100, CE

Donovan Rall’s 16th vintage release is an accomplished set of wines by a masterful winemaker. Donovan has stepped up his game yet again!

Today we’re focusing on the 2023 Rall Syrah – South Africa’s best value Syrah. If you’re a Northern Rhône lover, this is a must. It’s aromatically beguiling, showing florals, notes of negroni, crushed coriander and biltong spice, along with concentrated fruit and wonderful citric freshness. With a stellar rating from Christian Eedes, the Rall Syrah is a 97-pointer for R295!

The Rall White 2023 is well established as an SA benchmark. The addition of a Noa Chenin concrete egg continues in 2023, and this is as smart a release as ever. ‘A wine of great refinement’, says Christian, it’s a blend of 71% Chenin Blanc, 26% Verdelho, and 3% Viognier.

The Rall Red 2022 has a Southern Rhône aesthetic and is a blend of 78% Syrah, 12% Grenache, 7% Carignan and 3% Cinsault. It’s a perfect bistro wine, boasting an impressive balance of power and freshness, with only 13% alcohol.
