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.
