Several Platter 5 stars, a Platter Red Wine of the Year for the 2008 vintage and this highest scoring SA red wine in Wine Spectator. Deep red, brooding colour. Intense rich berry fruit with some leather and spice on the nose. A little chalky white pepper and hidden hints of dusty herbs. Big, firm, focused palate of concentrated fruit and spice. A very long palate. A smart, serious Syrah! Best between 2018 & 2025. Recommended glassware: Spiegelau Bordeaux Magnum. Ideal with oxtail stew or venison casserole.
