Antonij Rupert, Syrah. Little Havanna, Umhlanga, South Africa. Delicate violet bouquet which mingles with ripe plum, black cherry and spice. Complex and inviting. A pliable, textured wine packed with silky rich, ripe black fruit. The gentle floral violet note and spice add dimension and interest. Smooth and velvety, it's layered with depth and concentration yet remains fresh and succulent. Balanced, structured and polished.
Boekenhoutskloof, Syrah, 2010. Shooting range, Richards Bay, South Africa. TASTING NOTES: Blackcurrant, cranberry, white pepper and the typical violets intensity on the nose with tarry undertones. Hints of leather and wet gravel takes the complexity of this wine to another dimension. The purity and concentration of the fruit makes for great ageing potential. The Boekenhoutskloof Syrah fruit has been sourced from a specific site in Wellington since 1998.
