Gabriëlskloof is the realisation of a dream for South African Bernhard Heyns, who searched for several years to find the unique piece of land that, in his words, would “root him to the spot”. In 2001 he found what was then a canola farm named ‘Avontuur’ and the penny dropped. It was soon obvious that the site had the potential to make high-quality wines with a distinctive character, and so it has proved. Gabrielskloof has been owned and run by the Heyns family ever since. That family has since grown to include members of the local community, several of whom have risen through the ranks to senior positions at the farm.
Gabriëlskloof Syrah on Shale 2020
A complex and alluring vintage that combines the savouriness of truffles, wet earth and thyme with black cherries and baked rhubarb. Grippy tannins and a salted liquorice aftertaste add a moreish texture to the finish. Fresh, tense and upright, this wine will age beyond 2028.
