The characteristic perfumey profile is classic and the opulent violets a hallmark of Swartland Syrah. We aim for structure and texture with pronounced aromatics, and textbook analysis enabled us to again produce a wine showing great varietal expression. Gentle winemaking practices with minimum intervention contribute to this beautifully approachable Rhone-style wine. We only use French oak and always choose to focus on fruit, rather than oak derived flavours.

Porcupine Ridge Syrah

SKU: 6002039005562
  • An intense, fresh nose shows a dark compote, with aromas of ripe plums, blackberry, violets, musky earth and exotic spice. The black fruit of the nose follows through with blueberries, juicy plums, fresh cherry and bramble flavours, and hints of leather, cloves, liquorice and potting soil – a balanced, brooding wine with integrated acidity, prominent sweet spice and smoky, savoury nuances. The smooth, velvety tannins add great balance to the mid-palate. The wine has a medium body and a plummy finish, with supple tannins, hints of dark chocolate, and sweet spice lingering on an ashy, iodine finish.
