Tasting Notes:

Our gracious Steenberg Syrah’s full red colour is a sign of the flavours and aromas that await you in the glass. Violet, nutmeg, boysenberry, and cherry sherbet on the nose transform into a medium- bodied, delicate black fruit and spice driven wine with soft, fine tannins, integrated acidity and a silky texture.

The philosophy is that the "wines are grown in the vineyard and then cared for in the winery". Special attention was therefore placed in obtaining the very best and latest known clones and matched to the correct soils and slopes. Environmentally considerate farming practices are employed as far as possible, with the help of non-toxic, natural formulas of pest control, and the employment of natural predators for help in keeping the grapes as healthy as possible.

Our Syrah grapes were picked in 4 batches and fermented separately.

They were crushed and de-stemmed before a 5 day cold soak pre-ferment, followed by 15 days fermentation. The wine underwent 2 pump overs per day. After fermentation, the wine was transferred to barrel for malolactic fermentation.

The wine spent a total of 15 months in large (500l) French oak barrels: 13% new oak, 26% 2nd fill 10% 3rd fill and 51% 4th fill. The wine was racked out of barrel and received a light fining before bottling in November 2017.

Food pairing

The ideal partner to fillet au poivre – in fact all red meats grilled over open flames.
