OUR AWARD-WINNING SYRAH
Huge care and dedication lavished on our guests goes into the making of Andreas’ exclusive, award-winning Syrah.
- Deep, purple red.
- Rich black fruit – most obviously blackberry, black cherries and plum notes. Voluptuous, full, big and luscious, with hints of pepper, Oriental spice and a touch of smokiness.
- Aromatic, medium to full bodied and powerful, with good extraction of the sweet flavours of black ripe fruits. Elegant with good texture and firm tannins, giving wine great ageing potential. A touch of mint, with lavender notes. Firm, well balanced oak and long finish with fresh, spicy, integrated mouthfeel.
After months of careful nurturing, the grapes are hand-picked in the early morning and brought cool and dew-fresh to the cellar, to await their metamorphosis at the skilful hands of our full-time winemaker, Shaun Meyeridricks, formerly of Boekenhoutskloof. Our wine spends between 12 and 18 months in French barrels, before being allowed a further period of 12 to 18 months to mature in the bottle.
The result is smooth, full-bodied, top-of-the-range wine, with characteristic peppery, spicy, and berry flavours. Our boutique size means we are able to exercise strict, hands-on quality control at each stage of the winemaking process, from the vineyard to the cellar. Everything from grape to bottle takes place on the farm. Experience our exceptional wine by booking a tasting and/or private cellar tour with our knowledgeable staff. For South African customers, our award-winning Syrah is also available to purchase from our user-friendly online shop.
