Tasting Notes:

Intense and perfumed with strawberry sherbet, white pepper spice and smoky fynbos on the nose. Layers of dark cassis and plum that unfurl layer upon layer in the glass with hints of graphite, tobacco leaf and sweet spice. The palate is polished and elegant, supported by silky tannins and bright acidity, which lingers to a mineral finish. This wine of understated power promises excellent ageing potential.

A wine that is in essence, feminine, powerful, influential and effortlessly sophisticated. The D.W. Syrah is dedicated to the visionary who first founded the Estate, Des Weedon, his wife Denise, the matriarch, and their grandson Derrick, who gave the Estate its Latin name.

With the first winter rainfall occurring at the end of May, it was one of the driest winters, which made for a challenging year. Winter was late but cold enough to ensure good dormancy in our vines. Hot temperatures from October resulted in earlier budding than 2015. Berries were smaller than usual with pleasing flavour concentration which made for a truly unique vintage.

Each individual barrel’s evolution is closely monitored throughout the total maturation period which, for our red varietals, can last for a period of up to 19 months. When the time is right, the art of blending comes into play where we creatively blend each component into a masterpiece, to complete the process which began in our vineyards, watched over by Mother Nature.

Food pairing

Bolder, warm climate Syrah pairs well with strongly flavoured foods. Slow roasted pork or steak with a blue cheese sauce pair well with full- bodied red wines.
