100% Syrah

Trizanne Signature Wines has released a pair of wines under the Reserve label, this pair, a Sauvignon Blanc Semillon blend and a Syrah, both from Elim near Cape Agulhas, exhibit Trizanne’s skill at expressing purity, balance and elegance in her wines without compromising on complexity, intensity or gravitas.

Meticulous vineyard selection culminated in the creation of two world class wines. They are amongst the most elegant of Elim wines, and effortlessly reflect the quality and style that Elim is capable of.

Tasting notes:
'Syrah has a very distinctive character in Elim - what Trizanne Barnard calls her 'preferred style' - with plenty of fynbos notes and an ethereal red berry fragrance. This is an appealingly fresh style showing considerable palate length. 2018-24.' – Tim Atkin SA Report 2018, 91/100

'Wild strawberries, cranberries, hints of pomegranate and crushed rose petals all neatly integrated with the oak. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, a lovely saline/spicy thread throughout this Syrah that lends energy and tension towards the precise and detailed finish. This is a superb, sophisticated and nuanced Syrah that should age with style.' – Winemaker

Comments by winemaker below:
Harvested from three vineyards in Elim, each from a different clone, on soils varying from shale, gravel and Ferricrete also known as Koffieklip. The 2017 Syrah is a beautiful example of cool-climate Syrah and a great counterpoint to the more commonly found warm-climate Syrah in South Africa. Minimal intervention was used during the winemaking process. After de-stemming, wine fermented naturally in open-top containers and benefitted from daily punch-downs. The wine then spent 11 months in old 225L French oak and was bottled in February 2018. The wine was made in a natural way, with only sulphur additions.
