This vintage reflects aromatic herb and perfume notes integrated with sweet fruit and toasted oak. Tight and restrained on the palate, with a pleasing, dry finish. A perfect expression of South African cool-climate Syrah.
This bold, aromatic wine will pair well with a thick cut beef fillet with peppercorn sauce.
