This Syrah is a Susan Stanleys exclusive from Stellenbosch’s Polkadraai Hills. Sourced from the best vineyards on Saxenburg, all planted on decomposed granite soils. Careful canopy management and crop control ensures they get the best out of each of their vineyards. After pressing, the wine was transferred to French oak barrels for 12 months (30% new). The wine was then blended and left to mature further in tank before bottling.
What can you expect?
Beautifully intense colour, the nose has alluring notes of ripe dark fruit and berries, think plums and blackberries, wonderfully supported by notes of ground black pepper and sweet oak spice. The palate is wonderfully structured and dense, but a bright acidity ensures the wine maintains freshness. The tannins are fine and provide just enough grip to add real interest to the wine.
