False Bay Old School Syrah 2018


False Bay Old School Syrah 2018
Coastal Region
This wine is sourced mainly from two vineyards in Stellenbosch, chosen because of their cooler temperatures and low yields.  Harvesting is by hand and fermentation is with wild yeast using a small proportion of whole-bunch grapes, to enhance complexity and freshness. The wine is then allowed to develop in large wooden casks – foudres.
Deep purple in colour, there is an enticing nose of raspberry and a hint of vanilla. On the palate it is bursting with concentrated raspberry and blackberry fruit, yet it remains elegant and fresh with good natural acidity.
A joy to glug on its own, but a great with most meat dishes.
