Reyneke Syrah, Stellenbosch – Biodynamic

Vintage 22019

'The 2019 Syrah Biodynamic is drop-dead gorgeous on the nose, offering blackberry, blueberry, crushed violet and light star anise aromas that blossom with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with velvety tannins and great depth and intensity, equaled by a finesse that leaves you wanting more on the finish. A sublime Syrah from Johan Reyneke.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 95/100 (Nov 2021)

Tasting Note

The Syrah undergoes a traditional style fermentation in concrete Nomblot tanks, incorporating 35%- 40% whole bunches which are foot crushed. Spontaneous, natural fermentation occurs with minimal punch down and punch over’s. The wine spends 12 to 14 days on the skins before being racked into older French oak for 14 months maturation. Uplifting bright sweet red plum fruit with layers of perfumed violets and red berry notes dominate the nose followed by subtle notes of fynbos, white pepper, cinnamon, liquorice and aniseed spice The palate shows a lovely freshness and purity of red fruit with a fine, spicy tannin structure. Drink now or until 2020.
