Iona Solace Syrah 2021



Tasting note:

“Layers of bramble and red berry fruit, with spicy, peppery aromas. Energetic and lightly rich palate that emphasises floral elements” – Winemaker

“Grapes for the Solace Syrah come from the organically farmed Brocha property, lower down in the Elgin Valley from the main Iona plantings and cellar. The 2021 vintage was particularly cool and hence later, the resulting wine having perhaps a little more heft than usual.

The nose shows red and black berries, white pepper and the vaguest hints of floral perfume and fynbos. The palate is broad and flavourful with well-integrated acidity and fine, supple tannins (whole-bunch fermentation amounted to just 10% and alcohol is 13.6%). As ever, it’s a wine that speaks distinctly of its origins bearing little resemblance to anything from Polkadraai Hills or Swartland.” – CE
