At Richard Kershaw Wines, we have selected particular clones of Chardonnay and Syrah grapes that are most suitable for the cool climatic conditions that Elgin offers.
Clonally defined, site-specific Syrah made from clones 9c & 21 sourced in Elgin. Subtle, precise style built on fine tannins that educes harmony, freshness and flavours of black fruit, iodine, medicinal and black pepper.
Selecting the best clonal varieties for the terroir, and the characteristics of the wines we seek to produce, winemaker Richard Kershaw makes wine that is a true reflection of what is in the vine and soil – delicate, fresh, structured and complex.
Complex savoury profile wrapped around a deep fruit core, freshness of flavour with cracked pepper, black cherry and exotic spices, gracefully set on powder fine tannins.
