Andreas Syrahs and our new premium label – Lithic Whisperer.

Andreas Syrah, 2020

  • COLOUR  Deep purple red

  • NOSE – Packed with red fruit, spicy, meaty and with smoky notes, concentrated, plummy, with freshly ground coffee and bitter chocolate notes. Aromatic with good texture and toasty character.

  • PALATE – Rich and full, concentrated, with beautifully structured complexity, fruity with flavours of sour cherries, stewed prunes, spicy with notes of white pepper and smoky bacon. Already silky smooth with good depth and density. Long and lingering aftertaste. Firm with “some” boldness.

  • Tannins are medium + and with high acidity…, which no doubt, with time, all will get well integrated.

  • Spirity on the nose, black ripe fruit notes 
  • Richly raisiny with charcoal flavours
  • Earthy with good notes of minerality
  • Dense with soft touch of white pepper

  • Concentrated, powerful with medium + tannins

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 wines spends between 12 and 18 months in French barrels, before being allowed a further period of 24 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 grapes to bottles takes place on the farm. Experience our exceptional wines by booking a tasting and/or private cellar tour with our knowledgeable staff. For South African customers, our award-winning Syrahs is also available to purchase from our user-friendly online shop.
