2017 was the second vintage of the Great Drought in the Cape and yields were again significantly lower than normal. However, by improving soil health with cover crops and mulch and by reducing crops early, the resulting wines have lovely concentration but also wonderful freshness. The GRANITE Syrah is always the most perfumed and elegant of our single-terroir Syrahs. This wine has a floral, spicy, cranberry nose and a tight, fresh structure with a silky texture. The palate has notes of succulent berries and delicate herbs and spices.
Ageing potential 15 – 25 years. Decanting recommended when opened young.
