Our Estate Vineyard Syrah is a typical expression of Stellenbosch, and owner Jean Engelbrecht’s favourite variety. Chosen in 2016 as one of Wine Spectator’s top 100 wines in the world.

Rich black fruit with a floral perfume of musk. Blackberry compote, blueberries and ripe damson plum combine with spicy paprika, sweet red pepper and sandalwood. Round, juicy black fruit follows on the palate, with intense black cherry, crème de cassis and chilli chocolate. Layers of complex flavours are revealed as the wine opens. Refined tannins are well integrated with the intense fruit, balanced by zesty acidity. Full bodied and structured with a long finish of blueberry and black pepper.
