Johan Reyneke, Stellenbosch
Grape Varieties: Syrah
the 2013 Syrah has a lively bouquet with cranberry, blueberry and violet aromas, with a touch of clove and white fennel developing behind. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin and well judged acidity; it has a light savory touch (black pudding!) with a nicely structured finish. Enjoy this classy, personality-driven Syrah over the next decade.
