The Prospector Syrah 2018
Spectacular panoramic views of Stellenbosch and Cape Town, cool hillside vineyards planted to classic varieties, and a modern family-run winery have combined to produce distinctive wines displaying the ripe concentrated fruity accessibility of the New World, with the complex elegance of classic wine styles.
Harvested from selected west-facing vineyards overlooking Cape Town and Table Mountain. Vertical hedge trellising and low yields ensure a complex concentration of flavours.
Fermentation between 26-28§C and gentle pressing retains the intensity of the fruit flavours. Fermentation was completed in French and American oak barrels where the wine was matured for a total of 16 months.
Dense, rich, black-fruited flavours, white pepper and spice laced with dark chocolate and fynbos. Barrel maturation adds toasty nuances to the richly textured structure.
