This block of Shiraz has endured the most challenging conditions. It grows on heavy clay soils, with lots of sand stone (Klip vineyard clone SH99). Hand harvested in Mid-March by low yielding vines and matured for 24 months in French oak barrels, 30% new.
A juicy celebration of the Syrah grape. Floral and perfume notes, with a lively middle palate, showing great mineralogy. The tannins are soft with natural acidity adding great freshness. Drink though to 2021
Pairs well with: Ostrich with wild mushrooms; Potjiekos; Karoo Lamb Shank and Oxtail with sage/thyme.
