Mount Sutherland, Syrah 2016

(1 review)

Planted at 1500m above sea level and frequently covered in snow, the newly allocated Sutherland-Karoo region is the coldest wine growing region in SA.

This results in a very low grape yield of only 3 tons per hectare, giving rise to a beautifully complex Syrah.

“…seductive star anise, cocoa, & ripe plum notes on 2018, showing effortless elegance and poise. Subtle and restrained, complex and fine…” Platter’s

Description

WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES

Continental style Syrah. Layers of aromas such as rose petals, black cherries, cloves and freshly milled white pepper. Succulence and richness on the palate and ends in a pleasant, long and ripe finish.

WINEMAKING

Fruit cold soaked for 10 days at 8º Celsius. Pumped over 3 times daily to maintain a low temperature in the cap. Whole-bunch fermentation at low temperatures. Both free-run and press juice were used. Aged for 14 months in French oak barrels, of which 20% new. South Africa’s first true continental climate wine. All Organic practices.

PRODUCTION

Charcuterie and cured meats as well as lamb and beef. Also delicious with richer, hard cheeses. Only 1200 bottles

    “From vines at 1,500 m altitude, seductive star anise, cocoa & ripe plum notes on 2018, showing effortless elegance & poise. Subtle & restrained, complex & fine. 18 months in old oak followed by 12 in bottle. No 2017. WO Sutherland-Karoo, as next.”
