Our founder, Bernard Podlashuk, is recognised for his daring vision, sheer audacity and progressive winemaking that helped place South African wine on the map in the latter half of the 1900’s. Bernard’s supreme respect for his vineyards favoured sustainable viticulture for authentic varietal expression aptly captured in this organic Syrah. Shiraz grapes from this fully certified organic vineyard in Voor Paardeberg were hand-picked at an average 24.5°Balling.
This is a complex and opulent Syrah reflecting the generosity of its origins with concentrated dark berry and plum flavours, brushed with a distinctive peppery spice and wild flower notes. Although ready for drinking now, it is generously structured with ripe tannin texture promising further secondary complexity on cellar maturation of up to three years. This wine is particularly recommended with venison, aged beef steaks or duck breast. ( Limited – 30 bottles available ).
