“Syrah can truly showcase terroir when allowed to do so.
Our winemaking approach is to honour this unique piece of land at the Southern tip of Africa”
– Johann Fourie
Appearance: Aroma: Taste
Confident and stylish, the wine entices with potpouri, cinnamon, pepper, hints of olive tapenade and a light perfume of sandalwood.
Centre to that is a solid midpalate with a rich yet fresh display of fruit set on tightly knit tannins to deliver a long, savory finish. Nuances of rose petals and bitter-sweet liquorice lingers to add that
extra bit of character.
The 2017 vintage took shape in a more old word style with restrain, tension and a savory coat that adds a classic, Syrah personality. it is underpinned with freshness and finesse, resulting in a wine with a leaner frame, typical of this cool climate.

It’s underlying freshness cutting through rich and fatty flavors. Venison potjie.
