Leeuwenkuil Wines
Heritage Series Syrah
2014

The indigenous Fynbos plants that surrounds the vineyard have a huge impact on the flavour profile. Lots of typical Fynbos herbs, thyme, buchu and white pepper than continue onto the palate. Violets, black olives and blue berry flavours adds complexity to this lingering wine. Scored a massive 95 pts by Master of Wine Tim James for both the 2012 and 2013 vintages, as well as being named as his "wines of the year" for 2 years in a row. The 2013 vintage also achieved the maximum Platter 5 Star Rating in the 2016 edition of the guide. A great wine for the cellar, that will reward a couple of years in the bottle.

Expected more
I must admit that I expected more from this wine. Din't get me wrong, it is good, but at almost R300 per bottle, my expectations were set very high. Worth it at this price... mmmm... Maybe not.
