Tasting Notes:
Dark fruit dominates an intense, brooding nose with its black currant, black olive, tar and graphite aromas.
Luscious, sweet red and dark berries follow through onto an exceptionally complex palate with rich flavours
of ripe plums, black cardamom and hints of ground pepper and sweet tobacco. A serious core of cured meat
and green olive tapenade add to the attractive savoury character of the structured mid-palate, with notes of
milk chocolate coating the mouth. The wine is supple, medium to full-bodied, with beautiful concentration,
silky-textured tannins and vibrant acidity to balance. Red fruit and spice linger on the finish with classic
nuances of white pepper and lively garrigue adding a Provencal character.

Winemaking Philosophy (Vinification):
Our Syrah is hand-harvested into lug boxes and transported to Boekenhoutskloof in Franschhoek for
vinification. Grapes are cooled in our cold room then transferred to our tulip-shaped concrete tanks for
fermentation. A combination of partially destemmed and whole-bunch (40%) clusters ferment spontaneously
with minimal sulphur additions and no acidification. A soft délestage is performed 2-3 times per day. Once
maceration is complete, the skins are basket pressed and gravity-fed into traditional 2 500L Austrian oak
foudres and 600L demi-muids for further ageing of up to 18 months.
