The fruit for our 2020 GRANITE Syrah hails from bush vines planted in the decomposed Granitic soils of the Paardeberg and this wine has become our Single Terroir red most synonymous with gorgeous perfumed aromatics, freshness and length.

Whole bunches were put into open top 500L French oak barrels and foot stomped to release some juice. Fermentation with indigenous yeasts is followed by four weeks of skin contact, after which the wine was drained and pressed to barrel for malolactic fermentation and maturation. We pigeaged once a day before, during and after fermentation. In Spring the wine was racked and after a total of 21 months in barrel was bottled unfiltered and unfined.

12 months in French oak 500L barrels, 50% new, followed by 10 months in 2000L foudre . 8 months of aging in bottle was then given before release.

Tasting Notes

The ripening season of this vineyard saw fair weather conditions, resulting in the naturally balanced fruit purity, chalky tannins and enhanced aromatics present in this wine. The shaded canopy of this deep-rooted GRANITE Syrah contributed to hints of white Lily and light spice on the nose, red berry compote on the palate and a stony minerality on the finish.
