    2020 Mullineux Granite Syrah Variety: 100% Syrah

    Production: 5 513 bottles / 459 cases

    Product Description 

    The GRANITE Syrah is from a single parcel of sustainably farmed dry land bush vines, planted in the late 80’s in the deep decomposed Granitic soils of the Paardeberg.  This is the parcel of Syrah that gives the best expression of the Paardeberg’s terroir – freshness and perfume.

    Tasting Notes 

    The ripening season of this vineyard saw fair weather conditions, resulting in the naturally balanced fruit purity, chalky tannins and enhanced aromatics present in this wine. The shaded canopy of this deep-rooted GRANITE Syrah contributed to hints of white Lily and light spice on the nose, red berry compote on the palate and a stony minerality on the finish. The wine will age at least 25 years and decanting is recommended when this wine is opened young.

    Alcohol: 13.86%
