This is our smallest production wine, from an older block of just 22 rows. We concentrate on texture when making up the blend – one critic described it as having the texture of crushed violets. This wine is vegan-friendly
– Serve at a cool room temperature
– Pairs well with herbaceous, hearty stews
We always focus on the texture – the mouthfeel – and the fine balance between power and elegance. It is not an “in your face” style: it shows pretty floral notes with slight pepperiness and the palate is smooth and polished with a long elegant finish.
From our own Oude Nektar farm in Jonkershoek, Stellenbosch.
This wine is based on our “Block 6” of Syrah, our oldest Syrah vineyard. The vineyard block is contiguous with our Three Pines Cabernet block – a very fine, decomposed granite soil with a fairly high proportion of clay that contributes to good water retention.
