The prevailing cool climate of the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge makes for an exciting expression of a grape variety that more often than not is associated with hot climates. Picking of the Syrah in late March allows the vines time to accumulate an enormous amount of flavour in the grapes. The result is Syrah with a great complexity of flavour and a minerality and freshness derived from the deep shale/clay soils on which they are grown. Very traditionalist winemaking is used here. A portion of the Syrah is whole-bunch fermented, with pumping over used to help extract flavours from the skins. Long periods of maceration in tank lasting up to 6 weeks ensure that the wines are pressed off into barrel only when all of the potential is taken from the grapes. Malolactic fermentation takes place in small French oak barrels, followed by a maturation of 24 months. Bottled at 15.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Syrah from the cool Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge brings black cherries, blueberries, liquorice, and subtle white pepper on the nose.

Palate: Soft wild-berry fruit and spice on the palate.

Finish: The finish on the wine is long showing great fruit purity.
